Military Discharge Upgrades

Military Discharge Upgrades

Sometimes military members are discharged from active duty under other than honorable conditions.  The Department of Defense (DoD) recently enacted changes that allow more veterans to upgrade discharges in order to qualify for veteran benefits.  The Government Accountability Office released a report stating that a large number of service members suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and other disorders were separated for misconduct.  Researchers found the DoD and military services did not consistently apply policy and consider that such service-connected medical conditions often lead to misconduct. Today, service members suffering from PTSD and TBI are more likely to receive the counseling and medical treatment they deserve.  If you did not receive an honorable discharge due to misconduct, drug use, homosexuality, or other reasons, we can help. Whether you need Veterans Administration (VA) benefits or want your discharge upgrade “just because” – call us today.
