  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Medical discharged during basic training

Question

My uncle was in basic training and was discharged for hearing back in 72. He received an honorable discharge according to his DD214. 

Would there be a claim based on the presumption of soundness? I haven't seen any of the entrance exams other than his DD214.

There really isn't enough information to make an informed  opinion... however,  an education guess would be ....if he was discharged during basic training unless the hearing loss occurred in basic I doubt be would be entitled to compensation.

What section of the regulation covers basic training? I was surprised the DD214 shows honorable with a good conduct medal.

Not enough info. If he was discharged in basic, there should be a code number that explains why. It could be honorable, I suppose, but it usually was general under honorable conditions i.e. medical reasons (again, there should be a code on it. As for gcm, no way. He didn't go the full amount of time to earn it. Doesn't sound right.

It would take some research to determine which regulation covered that time period......
