I have two discharges one Honorable and a second one under conditions other than honorable. Can I receive benefits from my first enlistment?
Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years military law experience.


Yes, if you have two discharges, one honorable and one oth, both discharges "stand alone"

So you can access all VA benefits under the first (honorable) discharge.

The subsequent OTH will not prevent you from drawing on the first discharge
