Re: medical discharge

The simple answer is yes. I don't know what you were discharged for, in most cases benefits are available.

Re: medical discharge

did you file for service connected disability at that time? Are you still having the same problem now? If you are still having the problem or if you can show that it has been going on over the years, you may have a claim. It will probably be difficult for you after all these years, but you may want to go ahead and file. All they can do is deny you, which of course they probably will. But good luck.
