I got out 1/30/2006
I was basically discharged for medical reasons but my dd-214 just noted early separation and I had honorable discharge. I also received a letter last November saying I have been honorably discharged from the Inactive ready reserve
So i can still qualify for the post 9/11 benefits. That's good. Do i qualify for a VA mortgage also?
I just want to be clear. Unless I get my DD-214 changed to medically discharged I will not be able to utilize my MGIB that I payed in to. Is there anyway I get reimbursed the $1200 I paid into it?
I am sorry last question. I signed my contract in November 2003 that would put me over the two year mark. I was in DEP (delayed entry program) until June. Will that count as service time. At least that will get me over the 2 year hump. Or does it go from the day I left for boot camp which was June 6th. and when you say two years you are stating active duty correct inactive reserves don't count?
Answer the last question below and I will then give you your excellent service rating you provided me with
Just wanted to follow up on our conversation. I did end up being able to qualify for a VA mortgage and post 9/11 benefits. I appreciate your assistance with that.
