In your future endeavors, “shirtless pic” is not a good choice for your profile picture on professional websites like Rally Point or LinkedIn

Coming to Rally Point to ask legal questions, knowing everyone is a graduate of The Barracks School of Law, is kinda dumb. You should take all your service records to the nearest VA rep and go that route

PV2 Tommy Smith - Sorry but I am NOT wrong. You can check with the pentagon and the Army, or you can check with MILPERCEN or you can check with any JAG office and they will tell you the exact same thing. And sorry yet again but if you got an other then Honorable or a dishonorable discharge the VA wont even talk to you let alone let you in the building as you MUST have by VA regulations, an Honorable Discharge BEFORE you are allowed to seek treatment or get benefits and this is by order of the US Congress. I have been dealing with the VA for well over 30 years and I am very close friends with the VA reps here in my local county and they have been doing this for a combined time of over 130 years (three different heads and three different Information techs as well as Two different Assistants.) And I would think that with this much time, I and my friends know quite a bit more about the VA then you do.

It's because of rectums' like you who think you know it all and give out bad information that are the reasons why so many vets don't apply for there benefits. The fact is the VA has been giving mental health to UTH Vets from 2014 on regardless of the charter of discharge. "As you are a graduated The Barrack's School of Law, which I am certain you know very well." Please explain to everyone how I received the below letter with UTH discharge because of PTSD.

The key phrase in this correspondent is "honorable for VA purposes." This determines VA benefits, not the character of discharge. Each service has a board for correction of military records. That is the one and only oath. Outside organizations or agencies can assist, but it the the discharging service's call.

CPL Hillary Beal - For everyone's FYI CPL Hillary Beal did it the right way. When you send the Board a Packet and list your issues A to Z with the Reg's. BY LAW the Board has to address every issue you put before it. (be it good or bad)

Were you discharged during initial training? The reality is that upgrading a discharge unless you can prove that it was given in error just about takes an act of God. However, certain entry level discharges still allow you to enlist again based on the RE code.

CPT Lawrence Cable - This is why I'm glad I've still got my original DD214, as well as the second one. I have 58 days of broken service, and some people wonder if it was a legal issue.
Nope, it was a 24-year-old me issue. :)

The only reason my broken service was so long was I needed for a new month to happen. Quotas. Who knew?!?

CPT you are right about the only way you can get one upgraded is if you suffer from PTSD, had a TBI or suffered from MST. Even than it is no way easy to due because you will have to prove the above somehow.

Unless things have changed since 1985, I just sent a letter requesting it to be upgraded 6 months after discharge and they did it.
