Customer Question
I was medically discharged in...
I was medically discharged in 1979 with a 20% on a judgment on by medical board I should have be discharged with 30% full benefits. They discharged me with only one mussel group come to find out there here five mussel group. I feel that I was wrongly discharged at 20% instead of 30% and the V.A. fix there's from 30% To 50%
