Taken from the briefing Veteran Benefits Update:  Maximizing Benefits for Service Members Discharged for Misconduct recorded May, 2016 in New York.

This briefing will provide attorneys with information to help certain veterans access health care, disability, housing and other services, if they are otherwise excluded due to their discharge characterization. About 4% of veterans, including 6.5% of recent-era veterans, are unable to access basic veteran services because their character of discharge is less than Honorable. Many veterans, veteran advocates, and even VA staff are unaware that the VA has discretion to grant eligibility to most of these service members. Advocates can help obtain an eligibility review and increase the likelihood of success.

Bradford Adams, veteran law attorney from Swords to Plowshares will discuss ways to help veterans discharged for misconduct maximize services they can obtain from the VA.
