Most veterans today are going to come under the Montgomery or Post 9/11 GI Bill, meaning no benefits unless you have a straight out honorable discharge.

So my question, given the factors involved is it still possible to apply and recieve the G.I. Bill?
What type of discharge is required to qualify for the Post-9/11 GI Bill?
Normally, an HONORABLE discharge is required to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. However the following types of discharge may also qualify you for the Post-9/11 GI BIll:

a medical condition which preexisted service and is not service-connected
a hardship
a physical or mental condidtion not characterized as a disability and did not result from willful misconduct but did interfere with the performance of duty

ask a question on the website is more productive.

Not sure why you cherry picked a piece of that. It does not cover the whole deal, like the webpage does.

No cherry picking. It's straight from the VA web site.

It is cherry picked. You pulled one piece out of a very long list of things to support your point. While other parts may refute your point.

It's not cherry picked. It's what I found when I googled it. I don't look at a variety of options and pick the one that best fits what I'm trying to get across. I expect the VA web site to provide accurate information.
