Second opinion] Will a general discharge affect job opportunities in my future, say if I wanted to be a counselor or psychologist?

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you overseas or stateside?

I will be stateside in November 2017.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?

In the beginning, but I will be bringing it up again next year because I am pretty desperate to get off submarines.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No just an answer to my first question.

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.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
