Army Discharge Review Board

We recently represented a former soldier who had been discharged from the Army with a General (Under Honorable Conditions) discharge for a “Physical Condition, not a Disability.” Essentially, he was kicked out because he had a previously undiagnosed anxiety disorder, which manifested itself once he went on active duty. We petitioned the Army Discharge Review Board on his behalf, and they voted 5-0 to upgrade his discharge to Honorable, and to change the narrative reason for his separation to “Secretarial Authority.” This erases this black mark from his record.  It is also important because it allows him to receive the GI Bill that he had paid into and could not use because of his General Discharge.

 

If you or a loved one has a negative discharge from the military, contact us for a free consultation. Please include a copy of your DD 214 and a brief summary of what lead to your discharge.
