EXCELLENT NEWS for Sailors and Marines discharged with an OTH or GEN discharge who have a diagnosis of PTSD, TBI, or other mental health conditions related to their service, OR have records documenting similar symptoms at the time of discharge that are attributable to their military service.
Under a new legal settlement, these individuals will have their discharge upgrade applications reviewed AUTOMATICALLY by the Navy Discharge Review Board!
Some eligible Sailors and Marines will receive notifications of their eligibility and instructions on how to reapply. But many of those eligible will not! So, please help us get the word out to them and their loved ones!
