Default Tough question- divorce/ MEPS

I was married and divorced in Japan. I couldn't get the divorce decree in time, and MEPs DQ'd me yesterday (after doing the physical, everything else!). I now have this document. The question is, do I have to get this translated? If so, does it have to be done by some official agency within the Army? Can I have a friend do it?

I need this EXPEDITED before going back to MEPs. My reservation for my MOS one lasts for 1 week, and there's only ONE slot left!

My recruiter is trying to figure things out too, but I'm working with him to get this done as quickly as possible.

your question appears to be clear. You werwe DQed due to not having your divorce decree? If anything, your recruiter failed you for sending you without the required documents. If the recruiter dont know the answer, he should call his higher to make sure. All I will do is try to take this to a Japanese person to have it notarized that its valid. Are the names at least in English? lol
