Life After An Other-Than-Honorable Discharge
This week, NPR’s Quil Lawrence has been reporting on veterans who served their country, but for one reason or another, received an other-than-honorable discharge.
This label has affected more than 100,000 in the last decade. Some were discharged for misconduct, others for drug use, and some for committing crimes. As a result, they no longer receive VA health benefits.
He joins Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss the special project.
