I was being chaptered out the army under a chapter 13 and was told by the commander that I would be chaptered under a chapter 13 with a honorable discharge. Today I was informed that my commander changed my chapter at the last minute to a chapter ...
1. Less than six (6) years means they can give you a general and all you can do is submit matters in writing - no board required. You can later apply to the discharge review board or the board of corrections, but that will only work if there is a clear error now or later on possibly.
2. Only the VA can tell you if you will not get your VA / GI Bill benefits.
3. Yes, the command can switch course like this, so long as they have a preponderance of evidence warranting the chapter they seek to impose. They can make even harsher decisions, like the choice to go with a chapter 14 versus a medical discharge.See question

The answer to your question TOTALLY depends upon the precise wording of your divorce decree and the law in Texas. No one can divine the wording on Avvo, and only an experienced Texas military divorce attorney can help. Seek out Jim (James) Higdon in San Antonio for advise or an Austin referral.See question

As a 100% disabled veteran, I have been trying to get dental treatment with the VA for the past two years with no success. This is an entitlement by law due to my statue as a disabled veteran. I have had no luck in my efforts.

How difficult would it be for a junior officer to have a bad OER removed or fixed? Also, what will happen if the ABCMR orders the army to fix or remove my OER? Who will make me a new OER and how? How this works?
This is going to be tough for you. You can apply to the ABCMR. This will require a preponderance of evidence that the OER is not accurate. That can be done with enough documentary evidence and affidavits from those who can attest to your performance. The problem is that OERs are really and truly a discretionary act in the eye of the rater. It is not impossible, but the odds are really stacked against you. If you convince the ABCMR that the OER is inaccurate, I believe you are looking at a removal from your file. I do not see any way the ABCMR or any other component within the Army will order your rater and senior rater to do the OER again anew. I think success for you is going to be a removal or a masking of the OER with a blank spot in your performance record. The blank spot is in itself a softer bad spot than the OER. The promotion board will be left to wonder what is there that they cannot see. In other words, the best paper is good paper, everything else is bad. It is only degrees of bad that you are talking about at this point.See question

Gawd I hope not. If there were, yours truly wold be totally and all encompassingly screwed. However, you might want to consider the status of your friends if this even crosses your mind. I was the kid that the other parents did not want their kids hanging out with, and I became a defense lawyer.See question
