I served 4 years 7 months on a five year contract. I was discharged
I served 4 years 7 months on a five year contract. I was discharged with a OTH that was upgraded to a General under honorable. I applied for Chapter 33 GI Bill and was denied on the basis that my characterization of service wasn't honorable. I'm currently using all other forms of VA benefits though. I also a good conduct medal which during a request to further explain i specifically asked about. That's when they said that even though I have a good conduct medal my characterization of service wasn't honorable.
My brothers grandson is being discharged for substance abuse.
My brothers grandson is being discharged for substance abuse. He was given an urinalysis test and tested positive for Percocet. Apparently he took the meds after the prescription had expired. He is currently going thru the discharge process by going thru substance abuse classes and workshop classes. Per my brother, his grandson states he will receive a general discharge. Is this correct? I have advised my brother to seek legal assistance for his grandson.
My husband is being chaptered for pt failure, a chapter 13.
My husband is being chaptered for pt failure, a chapter 13. He has eleven years of active duty service with two tours of duty in a war zone. My fear is they will give him a general under honorable discharge instead of an honorable. I know he has the right to a review board since he has served over six years, my question is though, is there anything we can do now to help him get his honorable? I am a plan for the worst person, and it want to be prepared to fight for my husbands honorable discharge should we need to. Any legal advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

can i sue the department of veterans affairs if they messed
can i sue the department of veterans affairs if they messed up my credit?I was erroneously discharged out of the army, they produced paperwork that stated I never went to AIT MOS School and i did, they just have the paperwork. They ended up collecting my Montgomery GI bill Kicker because they said my contract wasn't fulfilled. I produced documentation of the DD214 that said I had been to AIT and was still in the army and the army revoked the discharge orders. I contacted the VA and they agreed that it was an unfair incident, and they have since re-awarded me the GI Bill and its educational entitlements, however they are not removing the collection terms off my account.
