UPGRADE YOUR DISCHARGE
Your eligibility to both state and federal veterans benefits greatly depends up on the characterization of your discharge. Under an Honorable discharge you are eligible for VA healthcare disability benefits, G.I. Bill education benefits, and all other VA benefits.
Under a General Discharge under Honorable Conditions you are not eligible for G.I. Bill benefits
Other than Honorable discharge is the most severe of the administrative discharges (which do not require court-martial). Reasons for the OTH discharge may depend on the severity of the offenses, how a particular branch of the military has traditionally handled such issues, and other variables.
Security violations, trouble with civilian authorities, assault, drug possession, sexual issues, or various degrees of drug violations or other problems could all potentially keep veterans from getting benefits.
Under a bad conduct or dishonorable discharge you are not eligible for any VA benefits without a discharge upgrade.
Many bad conduct discharges were given to veterans who in fact were suffering from a mental disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury symptoms– or had an isolated event based upon life factors beyond their control at the time.
RECENTLY ALL THE MILITARY BRANCHES HAVE MADE IT EASIER TO GET A DISCHARGE UPGRADE
