I've been in contact with some people still in barracks and they have told me that was what their plan was to do to me and also they have made all soldiers in my platoon right sworn statements.

I was given an Honorable discharge DD214 after the board

Hi Pearl, I was given an Honorable discharge DD214 after the board reviewed my case and upgraded it to Honorable. I had an aneurysm while in the service but had been given a general discharge at the time. My DD214 shows Net active service this period as 10 months 7 days, not enough for VA home loan benefits from what I understand. I was previously in the reserves and had served 6 months and 6 days active duty training and 9 months 26 days inactive. My separation is listed as under Secretarial Authority as the reason for separation. AR 635 200 PARA 5-3 separation code JFF. Hoping you could tell me if you think the VA would consider this to be eligible for a va home loan even though I did not serve the 2 years.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: not yetJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I had an aneurysm at the time. I spoke to one of my state senators who wrote a letter n my behalf after I showed the medical records and sent to the review boardJA: 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.

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.

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.
