Former Airman’s Discharge Upgraded
General Discharge upgraded to Honorable. We have been representing a former Airman who was kicked out for a “personality disorder.” The military frequently uses this “catch all” for those they want to be rid of, especially those with mental health issues, including PTSD. As our client did not have six years active duty, he was ineligible for a board hearing, and the command discharged him with a General Discharge. We took the case to the Air Force Discharge Review Board, and filed an extensive brief on the client’s behalf. We just got word that his discharge had been upgraded to Honorable, allowing him to qualify for the GI Bill and, more importantly, get his dignity back.
