    Answered . It depends. If it was an honorable discharge you should be ok. If not than this may be a huge problem for GMC-Good Moral Character grounds. What was the nature of your "medical discharge?" Also, it depends whether you are qualifying for naturalization based on the 3 or 5 years or based on special expedited military rules for serving in theater of war or within 6 months of discharge etc. Need more info and need to consult with competent immigration counsel to discuss details about your situation.
