Upgrading Improper Discharges

By: Eric D. Abes

The Veterans Administration recently announced an effort to review and potentially upgrade the discharge status of Veterans who may have been discharged improperly. Many times when a soldier suffers from PTSD, the effects of a sexual assault, addiction, or other psychological traumas, they are booted out of the military for misconduct, instead of receiving the help and benefits they deserve.

The military occasionally breaks someone but refuses to take responsibility for putting them back together. Now the VA is working to fix that problem. The 2017 National Defense Authorization Act contains bipartisan language to help Veterans in these circumstances.

If you suffer from PTSD, are a survivor of a sexual assault, or any other psychological trauma, contact Abes Baumann for help getting the benefits you earned. You never have to go it alone.
