Hey, new to the boards and haven't been able to find anything to answer my question, so here goes.
First some background:
In nuke school I got an ARI, wasn't masted or punished in any way (Basically just passed out drunk on the beach, but a civilian though I might have AP and so called the ambulance against my friends objections.) I got "treated" and continued with my school, got through prototype NP, and when I got to my first command the DAPA their decided I hadn't been treated adequately and sent me to see SARP, who referred me to mental health, who treated me for depression and pulled me off the submarine while telling me it wasn't the end of the world and I wouldn't get de-nuked or de-sub.
My first 6 month limdu just ended and they were going to med-board me but I was improving so after basically begging to be given another chance because I'm hoping to get back to my old self and go back to work they extended me another 6 months. They also De-nuked and De-sub'd me, which bummed me out, but the worst is they are taking back my bonus pretty much cutting my paycheck by 1/3. There is nothing I could have done to avoid being pulled, other than just lying to mental health about what is going on with me. I have a wife and kid and alot of bills and was barely getting by before.
I thought they couldn't pull my bonus unless I had voluntarily separated or done something illegal and been masted out. Is this something I should pursue? Is it possible they just saw my De-nuking and refunded the bonus without even checking the situation? I am starting to think maybe it isn't worth it to try to stay in and I should just stop fighting it and let them separate me.
