Could someone please help me out with this one.... I am being discharged for a bad batch of shin splints, which haven't shown any sign of improving the last 3 months. I am out of time, and have been told they may well put me through the discharge process. I was told it wasn't a full medical discharge (as i was told something like that was only given if you were say, diagnosed with diabetes or something), but rather i'm getting an administrative discharge on medical grounds. Can someone please tell me what this means exactly? and I am wondering: do i still get some form of help getting back into civvie street (i.e resettlement, and/or compo), or is it a matter of the army only saying goodbye, and that's it- i'm on my own? I haven't completed my phase 2 training as yet, and have been on the sick for shin splints since July. The army MO misdiagnosed them as a result of over tight boots a week before final fling in phase 1.
