This fact sheet covers circumstances that could lead to a servicemember being less than honorably discharged from the military, and subsequent issues with access to care from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Our recommendations reflect over four decades of direct community-based service delivery to veterans of all eras, regardless of discharge. Our research and policy efforts are informed by the work we do—providing transitional and permanent supportive housing, mental health support, employment and legal services—each and every day.
