Soldier's Discharge Upgraded

Mr. Cassara recently represented a soldier who had been discharged with an Other Than Honorable Discharge for a long period of AWOL and drug offenses. Mr. Cassara had his client undergo a series of medical exams which showed that he had significant PTSD. Mr. Cassara used this information to petition the Army Discharge Review Board for an upgrade to his discharge. The ADRB agreed and upgraded the soldier's discharge to General (Under Honorable Conditions.) This resulted in restoration of the soldier's rank and allows him to get medical care for his PTSD through the VA.
