I was honorable discharged in 1984 after 1 year 3 months of service in the Air Force
. The reason stated on the dd 214 is Voluntart Misc. Reasons. Here is what happen
JA: Are you overseas or stateside?
Customer: After 2 weeks in the Air Force, my brother went hiking by himself on a 6 hour hike, but after 3 hours into his hike it rain cats and dogs for actually 4 days. My dad was to pick him up at the other side of the forest at 4pm. Dad waited for a hour and then panicked and call the local sheriff. My brother came and was never found. Search and rescude refused to go until the rain stopped which was 4 days later. Later, dad 6 mnths later had a cardica arrest and had cpr and brought back to life but had 3 months hosptializationa and was on downhill. My family was over whelm with taking care dad. I requested a humaritan transfer to a base closely to my home near dad. I was denied. The red cross verified the situation and communicated to the Air Force the truth of the situation of these things. I was granted Honorable Discharge
under Voluntary MIs. reasons
JA: Have you talked to a JAG attorney about this? Or anyone in the chain of command?
Customer: So years when I reviewed my discharge papers
, I thought I had eligible for Coe. I applied and was denied. Can you help
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: so I assumed it was under hardship for the reason for separation
and not voluntary? I asked the vet admin at the time a few years back and they stated they could not access the files since it was too long ago to see the red cross paperwork verifying the situation.
