The title is misleading; the vets can sue the military , in this case the Navy for their discharge status not the VA. The VA has no say over anyone's classification of service at discharge as that is on the branch of service. The VA determines eligibility based on that classification of service and then service connection or non-connection of ailments or injuries.
from the article- "veterans who say they were given less-than-honorable discharges for minor infractions linked to untreated mental health problems". Couple of issues here. These Veterans will have to prove the linkage of PTSD caused or resulted in the "minor infraction". Is Domestic Violence a minor infraction? What about a positive urinalysis? I could go on but Soldiers are not discharged due to PTSD. They are discharged usually for violating the UCMJ or civilian law which forces a series of consequences.
