  1. I was in the USMC, I was discharged 11 Oct 2017. My separation code on my DD-214 says JFV1 which is for a condition not a disability. Fast forward to after I get back home from where I was stationed, and I went to the VA. My local VA granted me 60% disability and sent me a letter where it clearly states that this is a service related disability. I receive monthly disability for that same condition I was discharged over. That is the only thing I receive any disability for and it was my reason for discharge. I was also placed in priority group 1 for VA Health Care as a result. Now that I'm applying for post 9/11 benefits, the VA is saying I'm only eligible for 50% due to my time in service and separation code on my DD-214 saying I wasn't discharged due to a disability. You're only eligible for 100% if your discharged for a disability. My question is since the VA has determined that my condition is in fact service connected, that same condition being what caused me to be discharged, is it possible to get my separation code on my DD-214 changed to reflect it being a service connected disability that way I can receive the full 100%?
