Hello what is not clear? My father was discharge from ship and navy saying he was not suitable for service, instead he was suitable for land duty. He was never treated in any hospital for his illness that could had been taken care

I understand...that information...but I do not see a clear question other than "what can we do"...are you asking if he can demand that the Navy take him back? What is it you are trying to accomplish?
