I'm most likely getting a medical board due to my scolosis and lordosis interfering with my physical performance, and I may be looking at a medical discharge. So what will happen? Will I be able to keep my GI bill? Does anyone know how they figure the percentage of disability?

You should still be eligible for the GI Bill. They will send you paperwork to fill out for the disability. They will have their doctors decide what percentage of disability you will get. If they are pre-existing conditions that you knew about and didn't tell them it will get a little difficult. Good luck.

thank you so much. The scoliosis and Lordosis developed after boot camp so I think that it will be considered-'line of duty injury'

i had a medical discharge, it depends actually, if you have been in over 180 days you will get an honorable discharge, i didnt i just got a medical discharge, you dont get to keep your GI bill unless you have been in for some time, 180 days i believe is the official your in the navy navy, so if your under you probably wont get it. And idk how they figure the percentage of disability, the military sucks for taking care of you once your out, so just forget you were ever in, I try.
