1.0 hour CLE


Friday, October 27, 2017

12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

Polli A. Pollem, Indiana Legal Services


Most veterans receive an Honorable discharge. However, there are many veterans who have "bad paper," or discharges that are less than honorable, which makes them ineligible for veterans’ benefits. Misconduct is usually the reason for bad paper discharges, but sometimes, the military gets it wrong. Some veterans’ misconduct occurred after they deployed to combat areas, but instead of getting them medical care for potential PTSD, the military discharged them. And it was only post-service that they receive a PTSD diagnosis. The Veteran Discharge Upgrade CLE will explain discharges and its impact on veterans, as well as the venues, procedures, and process to upgrade discharges through the service branches' Discharge Review Boards and Boards of Correction of Military Records.
