I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Are the seeking to give you an "other than honorable" discharge? Or a "general" discharge?

SOrry...I asked question...did you not see it?

Can you speak on the phone? This would allow me to address your concerns directly. There is a nominal ($5) additional charge. I do not time my phone calls...we can converse until you receive the information you need.

If you are unwilling to speak on the phone I will opt out of this question and allow others to assist, if they are willing.
