VFW, VVA Host Bad Paper Panel

National VFW - 9/25/2017

Last Friday, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Vietnam Veterans of America hosted a panel discussion on bad paper discharges in the Capitol Visitor Center. The panel, which consisted of subject matter experts from around the country, discussed the topic with colleagues, veterans’ service organizations representatives and congressional staff. The focus of the discussion was the long-term impact of bad paper discharges on veterans and their families, as well as identifying possible policy solutions. Many veterans who received bad papers received administrative discharges without due process rights. The number of these discharges has increased by more than 600 percent since World War II. Until recent years, individuals being administratively separated were not screened or given the opportunity for treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury or military sexual trauma. Watch the panel discussion.
