What would you do if you were in such a debt that the Military wasn't enough and you needed a second job?
Your whole paycheck is taken from allotments and negative balances before you can even use your money that you need for necessities and you have to get a second job. You're soon to get out of the Army so they're not going to give you any AER loan, and the check into cash places will not give you money because of your negative drafts, you have nothing of value to sell, Your credit cards are maxed out and they have their hand out wanting money, your in threat of a repossesion of a vehicle, and that's going to be at least $10,000. You want to stick it out so you don't file bankruptcy because you have only the other vehicle and that's your transportation. What would you do?

Well I would go up my chain of command for help. I would get another job. I dont see why your chain of command wouldnt let you do that instead of possibly getting out the military for the "other than honorable discharge". And if they dont want to help well, do what you have to. Its not their lives its yours.

Sit down and see where your money is going, get plan do a budget, if you lay it out, that would be your first step

Re-enlist and collect a bonus if you qualify. AER can probably teach you how to budget your money like other military relief societies do.

Stop living beyond your means. You make X dollars a month, Stop spending twice that amount each month. Do they still give reenlistment bonuses for critical MOS's ? that or Bankruptcy is your only alternative, unless you can work out a deal with you creditors, which means going threw a lawyer either way.

hey killer, you might want to let someone know how jacked up your life is. Let your next in command know and ask for help. That is why you have a chain of command, and small unit leadership. These problems are meant to be dealt with early and often.
