Is it fair to perminantly discharge a fully fit soldier? I'm currently recovering after a serous knee injury but have been warned of my position to stay in the army. my career in which i stay loyal and committed to have recently informed me that i will be discharged with little chance of re-applying after eighteen months. which i can only imagine is to cover their own backs if further injury should occour? is this fair? if not then what positions could i be open to within the forces?
