    Is there a point in applying if my dad was given a General Discharge his 2nd enlistment? He was a Korean War vet and an alcoholic as a result. He joined back up and intended to take us with him when I was about 2 but when he got to Germany we couldn't go over. He was depressed and started drinking worse. Does that now disqualify my mom for benefits?

    No. She should be fine. A general discharge isn't even a bar to benefits.
