Lawmakers urge defense bill to help less-than-honorable discharges
from The Hill
A bipartisan group of nine lawmakers joined with leading veterans groups to call for the final version of a defense policy bill to include language aimed at making it easier for veterans discharged for behavior related to mental health issues to upgrade their discharges. Such discharges haunt veterans for the rest of their lives, advocates say, denying them veterans benefits and casting a stigma that can affect aspects of civilian life, such as finding employment.
