Customer Question
How can I find out...
How can I find out the type of discharge I received from the Army? Was discharged back in 1981 and if I remember correctly it was a Chapter 9 ... General Discharge just would like to know for sure. Was young and was so many years ago I just can't remember. Would also like to know if I qualify for any benefits.
