Hello, I'm ***** *****...I was medically discharged from navy
bootcamp 30 yrs ago for shoulder injury of preexisiting origin. In Navy "exit briefing" I was told that I was not technically in the military because I did not complete basic and served less than 180 days. I was told to not list on job applications as military service or state myself as veteran, except if asked specifically if I'd ever been medically discharged. I've adhearred to those instructions for 30 years without issue. Now I'm concerned about a college admission application I submitted when returning to school a few years ago. I answered no to having served in the military as I always have. However, a couple years ago I mentioned boot camp
off the cuff to a classmate who is now aware of discharge
. Concerning, I've recently fielded several "fishing type" questions about military service from people in mutual contact with the small close-knit school staff. I've always answered questions about military as instructed by the Navy but now would like to confirm whether that information was indeed correct or not...or do I have anything to worry about with admission application? Could that be grounds for dismissing me or harming new educational/career pursuits as I'm 1 course from graduation?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
