I know a guy who was chaptered out for PT failure. That was 2 years ago. He just recently found out that he's had a significant heart condition that went undiagnosed for many years. Is it possible for him to get his discharge changed to medical and is there any benefit to doing so?

This is, according to the Dr, a genetic/congenital condition. It was not detected when he went through MEPS. It is significant enough that he would have been disqualified for service had it been detected. It is also, in all likelihood, the major reason in his poor PT performance, ie he had no problem with PU and SU, he just had trouble with the run. He is 27 and had a major heart attack which led to the discovery of this condition.
