Obtained General Discharge for former Marine discharged for drug use
Mr. Cassara represented a former Marine who had been court-martialed and discharged for drug use. The marine received a Bad Conduct Discharge. Mr. Cassara successfully petitioned the Navy Discharge Review Board on his behalf and secured an upgrade to a General (Under Honorable Conditions) Discharge by showing that the former Marine suffered from an undiagnosed mental illness at the time of his drug use and UA. This discharge allows the client to receive previously unavailable Veteran’s Administration benefits.
