Recent Montgomery GI Bill Questions

  • 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.
  • Im a veteran retired in 2005 and as of Dec 2012 with a VA

    I'm a veteran retired in 2005 and as of Dec 2012 with a VA disability rating of 100 percent. I started a doctorate program covered by the Montgomery GI Bill and have about a year left on GI bill benefits. Once these GI BIll benefits end can I obtain Post 911 GI Bill benefits--I meet all Post 911 requirements otherwise.
    I would appreciate your assistance on this. Thanks in advance.
  • If I get discharged for depression caused by an improper diagnosis

    If I get discharged for depression caused by an improper diagnosis and therefore using the wrong medicine, which without going into too much detail basically caused me to have somewhat severe depression and anxiety, what kind kind of discharge could I expect? And how would my GI bill be affected? I've been in for 15 months.
