- The Army separated 469,294 soldiers, 67,697 of whom “had a behavioral health diagnosis in their record and were separated for misconduct.”
- Of those, 3,327 soldiers had deployed within 24 months of separation and had a PTSD or TBI diagnosis, meaning they should have undergone a pre-separation medical exam to evaluate that diagnosis.
- The vast majority of those soldiers received honorable discharges. Of the 394 who didn’t, 221 received “appropriate behavioral health evaluations” that were available to their commanders when their discharge status was determined.
