Understanding Military Discharge Categories
Decoding the Discharge Types
- Honorable Discharge: A Foundation of Dignity
- The highest form of discharge, signifying exemplary service and conduct.
- General Discharge: For Satisfactory Service
- Granted when a service member’s performance is considered satisfactory but not outstanding.
- Other Than Honorable (OTH) Discharge: A Stigma to Overcome
- Carries a significant stigma, affecting benefits and future prospects.
- Bad Conduct Discharge (BCD): A Serious Consequence
- Imposed by special or general courts-martial for serious offenses, impacting benefits and employment.
- Dishonorable Discharge: A Grave Outcome
- Reserved for the most severe offenses tired by General Court-Martial, resulting in the loss of all military benefits.
- Dismissal: The End to and Officer’s Career
- Equivalent to a Dishonorable Discharge for Enlisted service members, a dismissal ends an officer’s career at a General Court-Martial.
The Discharge Upgrade Process
Charting Your Course to Redemption
Our experienced veterans’ attorney assess your eligibility for a discharge upgrade, considering factors such as time since discharge and the nature of the discharge.
We meticulously help you gather and review all relevant documents, including service records, commendations, and character references.
Legal Argument Development
Crafting a compelling legal argument is crucial. We leverage our expertise to build a case that highlights your positive contributions and the circumstances surrounding your discharge. The Department of Defense separated many veterans under the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy or because they were suffering from PTSD. That’s not fair and today the DoD favorably looks at applications with these issues.
Discharge Review Board Submission
We submit your case to the appropriate discharge review board, presenting a thorough and persuasive case for an upgrade.
As a veterans attorney, we provide representation throughout the process, ensuring your case is presented with the professionalism and attention it deserves.
