Short Answer



If you are flagged for adverse action, which is a non-transferable flag.

In addition if you are going through the 27D, paralegal school, an Article 15 (except for a summarized 15) is an automatic disqualifier from the MOS which requires a waiver from the Regimental CSM to remain in the MOS.
