‘THOUSANDS’ OF VETERANS WITH BAD PAPER DISCHARGES MIGHT NOT KNOW THEY CAN UPGRADEVeterans kicked out of the military due to negative behavior related to post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury and sexual trauma have been upgrading their discharges after a 2017 law change, but there are potentially thousands of others left without access to care or benefits because of less-than-honorable discharges.
Last week we asked about how many children everyone had. 77.5% of responders reported having one or more child at home while 7.5% reported having no children and the remaining 15% reported being empty nesters. Thanks for your responses!
