I am a mental health professional at an addiction facility.

I am a mental health professional at an addiction facility. I am looking for an explanation of a OTH discharge with a chapter 10. I do not know what this means. I am attempting to determine if his presenting symptoms are legitimate versus delusional. I really need to know if there is a PTSD situation or not.JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: I am in MN not related to he military in any way. Person was discharged 9 years ago.JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: I would have no way to do this with the person's current symptoms. I do not even know if he was posted in Iraq or not. I have had patients who fabricate stories about PTSD all the time under the same circumstances. No verification other than self report.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: How can I check previous history to determine validity of the claims of service and PTSD? This could be useful to the patient if the rules are changed for providing services for other than honorable discharges in the future. This information would be helpful for me to have for referral purposes.

My husband was sent home early from deployment but they

My husband was sent home early from deployment but they waited until after 60 days (69) so an LOE was written and it was negative which by AFI requires a referral OPR. The LOE is vague, misleading and inaccurate because much of it was addressed and remedied and he hasn't gotten a clear answer in why he was sent home other than that he was under qualified. But now because they waited to send him home, he's been told there will possibly be an administrative discharge, he can't promote or move (supposed to be on the VML next month) and that he can't cross train either. What options does he have. He's planning to write a rebuttal to the referral OPR, but can he fight the LOE or waiver the 60 day period?JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: StatesideJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: His commander. He basically told my husband what I just told you. We know the home commander and deployment commander had been talking for at least a month, spoke with legal at least 3 weeks before he was sent home and he was told nothing until 2 days before he was to leave and they'd already gotten his tickets.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of.

I am currently looking at the answer to a question that was answered seven years ago. My question was answered satisfactorily for the most part, my only question now is if it's still true one retains all benefits earned from a prior honorable discharge.

I am in the Army, have served almost 6 years. I was

I am in the Army, have served almost 6 years. I was originally infantry then switched to EOD. I was changing my MOS again, unfortunately received a DUI 2 weeks before graduation. I have had no previous run ins with law enforcement, no previous UCMJ action, and outperformed my peers in military courses. I am not sure if they will discharge me. I know I am getting a GOMOR, but worried if I get a discharge, that it won't be Honorable. I understand it as receiving honorable is what i need for the GI bill. No one was injured in the dui case but my car was totaled. In your experience, what is the latest trend for punishments like this?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Arizona is where the dui took place. Fort *****, *****tucky is where I'm stationedJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: Yes, my commander told me that I'm getting a gomor but that's all he knowsJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that's it
