I am currently looking at the answer to a question that was

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. Thank you!JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: StatesideJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: Yes, and while they have told me that I would (including a JAG) I wanted to know from another party as well.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not particularly; my only real concern at this point is my GI bill eligibility.

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

I have an RE-4 from the Navy from 2003 for "Fraudulent

I have an RE-4 from the Navy from 2003 for "Fraudulent Enlistment". My recruiter told me to lie regarding whether or not I took Adderall for ADD in high school. I listened until I thought better of it and told the truth. They gave me an RE-4. Today, I have since graduated College and Law School and want to get back in the PA National Guard to finish what I started 13 years ago. I have been in contact with a recruiter and understanding that this is waivable. I am extremely physically fit with no moral or other impediments. I have 2 daughters. This RE4 from 2003 haunts me. I already tried the BCNR through an attorney named Dale Saran and never heard anything back. I am not sure how much Dale really did.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Once before Paid 3000 got nothing for it.... years agoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No, that's essentially the broad strokes
