MILITARY DISCHARGES "CHAP.5-13"

A very informative article was published in the "BlueRidgeNow.com" on Feb.9th. It details the horrible situation for our troops returning from combat.

Whether or not you support the deployment of our military; we all owe them humane treatment upon returning from combat.

In spite of having been tested physically and mentally at enlistment, and being found fit in all ways, they are now being told that their mental and/or physical conditions are due to "pre-existing personality disorders"!

Please review the Military discharge regulation 635-200 Chapter 5-13 and ensure that we are treating our combat veterans with the care they deserve.

I got chaptered on this, despite two doctors saying I was fine, I ticked off the army when I went to Iraq as a contractor, I ended up seeing my old unit in Iraq, I'm still fine, the army wont fix my discharge despite 32 1/2 months in Iraq after being chaptered. Please fix this regulation, it violates equal protection rights.

This is exactly what happened to me, and know I want to fight for what i deserved for in the first place!!!!
I was discharged in 2003, promised all my bonuses/college fund/benefits, unit was deploying to Iraq they didn't need another "broken"
soldier to stay at HQ, so they offered me an honorable discharge.
In the Navy, I had an emotional breakdown on my submarine and was sent to the mental hospital with suicidal ideations. The doctors there sold me an "administrative discharge" as the quickest way out of the hospital and back to normal life. They never said that I'd be denied all of the benefits I'd earned after two years active service. They intentionally mislead me in order to take my benefits. I would never have taken it if I had known.
i was in the army in 1983 and got a chapter 5 par 5-13 discharge and i feel the department of defence is not taking care of the men an women that they ordered onto war there are way to many homeless and that should not be and their health should them nothing at all the dod should pay for everything including therpy if they nee it returning from war of kind
To Whom it concerns, was released from the military in 1977 under AR 635-200 SPD JMB.. Unsuitability traits of character or behavior disorder .. UP Till this, my last unit which had the highest AWOL rate on Ft. Lewis the officer who was found unfit to command used it. I but requested for review board. I won an Honorable Discharge yet was found in 2001 to have PTSD due to a situation which happened in Korea..I'm fighting to get the DP changed even today to PTSD..
