My son, who has been in the Arkansas National Guard, has

My son, who has been in the Arkansas National Guard, has been, or is on the verge of being discharged from the US Army, for depression. He was at AIT and some circumstances arose that just pushed him over the edge of depression. The medical team can recommend a "517" discharge. Will he lose his benefits? He has no disciplinary actions and the simple fact is he couldn't pass his final PT test after 68-W training (5th in the class). I am worried he will lose all his benefits.JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: He is in Texas at Ft. Sam but lives in Little Rock and is a member of the Arkansas Nat'l Guard.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: We are talking with the IG office at Ft. Sam. His National Guard liason at the base is worthless, as in unreachable.JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this.Customer: Oh, really... and this will cost money right?JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: during the final PT test, he tried to cut off a half lap and was caught and subsequently lied about it to the 1st Sergeant. They saber rattled for a while about Chapter 13 and Article 15 but that was to scare him. He admitted to cheating and lying to the Sergeant. The IG official spoke to the 1st sergeant and he is just pissed Sean lied but stated that Sean was very much "worth saving" as a soldierJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Military Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.Customer: Sean is an EMT in private life. And he was fifth in his 68-W class at AIT. He would be out of there today except for the PT run... and at the time, he was under medical care for pneumonia

I'm trying to help my friend gather information

I'm trying to help my friend gather information for a characterization upgrade to an OTR. The incident happened over 26 years ago. He has dealt with depression over what seems to be an unethical application of the Chapter 10 option. (In my opinion.) He was charged with rape. I've read the testimonies and statements. He has finally seen the CID report and the results are 'no weapon found,' 'no fluid,' 'no fibers,' and there are no polygraph results anywhere. The accuser contradicted herself 100% in a sworn statement or testimony and admitted she had blackouts, was admitted into rehab and some kind of 'center' before she joined the military for her issues. He knew he was innocent but the military said "sign this or we're sending you to prison." It is his word against the word of those at the time and of course the board will not upgrade because "it's not on paper that he was coerced into signing." Just hoping to find some helpful case law or something.
