You must undergo a health screening- including mental and physical health exams - when joining the military.  People with a history of severe symptoms would not be allowed to join.

How much training you complete and what your discharge code effects many things. 

You will not receive Veterans benefits by joining the army when you have a history of mental illness & are discharged before completing boot camp.

I joined when I was 25 just asking if that means was a soldier for sure or member of army and got promoted and paid but never finished all training
. I'm 34 and had one break down before then but didn't mention it as was told to do and now more breakdowns is that why can't get disability because joined army?

Having been in the military has nothing to do with being denied.

I agree with Just Me. Military has nothing to do with approval or denial.  I was in the Army back in the 80's, with an honorable discharge. My case was denied for 4 years but I won FF in the end.

If your plan is to join the military then your in for a surprise.  They will completely screen you to determine if you have any preexisting issues... trying to do something like this is unacceptable and I can't believe you would even ask.  This is disgusting and should be removed from the forums.

It doesn't matter what the rules are by trying to get a retirement for not even completing basic training is deplorable.  I take offense to this approach because I served 12 years and just laugh at your pathetic question!

I think you misunderstood. The OP is asking if having been in the military for a short time could have a bearing on being denied.
