Do I still qualify for Montgomery GI Bill with an Other than Honorable Discharge? Served USMC from March 1992-Oct 2006. Came back from Iraq as E-6, went UA, discharged as E-3, discharge says "misconduct".
You will not qualify. To qualify for benefits for the GI Bill (either the MGIB or the new, post 9/11 GI Bill) you MUST have an honorable discharge.
The VA will not waive this requirement.
If you can apply and upgrade your discharge to "honorable" you could qualify, but short of that, you will not
Sorry to bear bad news.
Please let me know if you have further questions; if so I will do my best to answer them. If not please hit the accept button, its the only way I get credit for my work.
