Okay, it's not her house because she is the Soldier. They (military) will make her leave while you and the kids stay in Base housing. SHE has somewhere to go. They will put her in a room at the Barracks while the issue gets resolved! They can't make you move into the Barracks!
And you written that you're figuring out what to tell her. Here's what you tell her....nothing. Not a damn thing! You don't think that the OM is already grilling her about information about you, about where your head is at? He wants to know what your game plan is in the WORST way!
It's unfortunate, but in some units, the SNCO's and Officers are part of the "good ol' Boys club" and they look out for each other. So, the more time you sit on this, you're giving them more time to rug sweep this if they can. The less people know about this, the better. Your giving him WAY TOO MUCH TIME to work a game plan.
You need to call Post/Base legal and tell them what's going on and you're looking for them to resolve the issue or else you're going to write your Congressman about it. DO NOT TELL YOUR WIFE YOU ARE DOING THIS!!! She'll just warn the OM. If Base Legal gets involved, the Unit has NO CHOICE but to address it. Her Colonel is so close to a Staff Officer position that he/she isn't going to let some Staff Sargent screwing your wife mess that up for him or her with a Congressional Inquiry.
If your wife gets mad, remember you didn't do this, they did. If she asks you why? Just say, " You wanted me to take the first steps into fixing this, I just took it."
Call Base Legal TODAY!!! AS IN RIGHT NOW!!!!
Damn, I'm becoming a regular Sea Lawyer here!
