Okay thank you

I'm just looking for a professional opinion so I will be awaiting a response. Hope to hear back soon on your opinion.

No effect here since it is a general discharge and there is mental health or criminal issues involved.Your state licensing board is only concerned with these kinds of back ground checks.I see nothing that will be a problem here, general discharge will not hurt you looking for a job.Employers don't care about your military background as far as discharge if it was general that ends there.They will be focusing on your education and skill set and qualifications professionally for the job.I see no issues here that will give you problems with a general discharge.

I appreciate the chance to help you and wish you the best.

Thanks for ratign 5 stars.
