I am currently a prior-enlisted midshipman. I was honorably discharged from enlisted service before reporting to the Naval Academy. I have received a "Certificate of Eligibility" from the Department of Veterans Affairs entitling me to 70% of Post 9/11 GI-Bill Benefits. My contract is up and I want to transfer to a civilian institution.
My question is: If I was to voluntarily resign from the Naval Academy and was given a General Discharge (Under Honorable Conditions) as a midshipman, would this revoke my previously approved GI-Bill eligibility that I gained during my first period of enlisted service?
A VA representative stated that "periods of service [at service academies] do not count toward qualification for post 9/11 GI Bill." ....But does it count toward DISqualification?
