https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPVdVw5XaPw Why did this marine get a Medical Discharge from the Marine Corps while being COURT MARTIALED for failing to obey a lawful order and violating Article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice???? A rank was taken away and he was Medically retired???? I serve Honorably and get hurt in the line of duty, with NO bad conduct my whole enlistment and don't get a medical discharge!!! Am I the only one that thinks this is wrong?? I fought for a year just to get my Honorable Discharge that I deserved because they gave me a General Under Honorable Discharge for getting hurt in the line of duty which caused me to be unable to perform my duties as an 0311!!! I am still waiting to hear back, what percentage they have evaluated me at for VA Disability, which will also be over a year of waiting. They separated me 2 days before I would of been promoted to E4, Corporal, and 4 days before my 3 year mark which would of given me 100% of the Post 9/11 Bill and my Good Conduct Award. I now know that it was all done on purpose after finding out that they found there was NO reason why they should of given me an Admin General Under Honorable Discharge due to medical reasons but medical reason are not service connected. Even though I was hurt while doing advanced training for my Unit. The injury I received has directly affected my everyday life since the day that I separated from the Corps in 2010!
