Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Is it difficult to get a medical discharge for a mental illness such as depression or is it fairly difficult? If one were trying to get out of the National Guard would failing the PT test be the best way?
Ok. thanks. If I failed every PT test for a year would that most likely be enough time to get kicked out?
Do you know if they usually make you repay whatever Federal or state tuition assistance or GI bill payments that you had receive once you are discharged for failing the PT test?
