Just an educated guess, but, it sounds to me you received an entry level separation. (This is probably wrong, in my opinion).I went to BCT in dec 2014, I had a stress fracture in my right hip. I was sent home in feb 2015 for 30 days. when I came back to BCT, I had to do BCT all over again. during the whole BCT process I never fully healed from my stress fracture, I began to swell in my knees and had severe pain. I went to the clinic and the doctor said pretty much that my body was done and I was going to to be medically discharged. the day of out processing I found out that my discharge was uncharacterized. why is that?
If you were on orders for 30 days or more (and especially if your total time on active duty was more than 6 months), you should have been processed under IDES.
Yes. You should apply.is it possible that I can get any medical or disability from the VA?
Apply to the VA for disability compensation. Also, consider applying to the Army Board for Correction of Military Records for Disability Retirement or at least separation pay.I still have the annoying pinching in my hip, I just want know what are my options, if there are any!!
Best of luck!
