Any veterans that think they got shafted on their discharge, give this link a look and maybe you can get a little more dough from Uncle Sam if it leads to a disability rating or increase in it if you already have one. At the very least, you can make a solid push to set the record straight on your discharge.

How to Apply for a Discharge Upgrade

Hope this helps a fellow vet out there!

(I personally am going to use this to try to get mine changed to a medical retirement since that's what should have happened in the first place.)

i requested my first copy of my records in 2015..
fucking sucks..

there's shit in your formal record they stick in & hope they can get away with, if you don't fight it soon enough..

Christ..

God help you, if you told them you spoke to your guidance counselor about how much you hated being in school...

holy fuck...

in any case, a records request at any VA office is simple enough...

Woke up to Caveman, making spears..
And so three months later—to the DAY—I crawled back to the spot and retrieved your rainfly from where you'd forgotten it. (I should burn it for all the trouble it caused...but I might keep it as a memento of a time when things between us were still good.)

I just got back to LA from the Bay - it was a very busy but happy trip. Went to Mt. Diablo, went to Berkeley and the City, even met up with @beyondthepaleogender! I did Craigslist rideshare both there and back, and both rides went fucking awesome :) Gonna post up for a bit and then I will (finally) begin hitchhiking east. Also - as of yesterday, I have been modding /r/Runaway for exactly a year now! :)
Been a while since I last posted on this thing.
Being stuck in PDX for the winter sucked n I’m looking to hit the road to NorCal in May.
