Veterans accuse the army of denying justice for wrongful discharges

A Fusion Investigation found that when Army Veterans try to appeal their discharges to get benefits for service-related injuries, the default answer is often no.

The Board for Correction of Military Records (BCMR) is the last place in the Army you can go to change your record, including overturning a discharge that left you without medical benefits for service-related injuries. Its stated mission is to “correct errors” or “remove injustices.” Rarely does it do the latter, say vets and lawyers.
