Ex-GIs may appeal
drug use discharges
WASHINGTON () -- Former servicemen holding bad
conduct or dishonorable discharges for using or possessing
drugs may now appeal for an honorable discharge under a
new policy announced yesterday by the Pentagon.
The Pentagon said Secretary of Defense Melvin R.
Laird has ordered that these ex-GIs may now request a
review of their cases. The order does not--apply to those
men punished for selling drugs.
WASHINGTON (/) - T h e
Senate Finance Committee yes-
terday adopted additional new
provisions in the Social Secur-
ity - welfare reform bill de-
signed to strike at welfare
One would eliminate a regula-
tion of the Health, Education and
Welfare Department that per-
mits a welfare applicant siply
to file a declaration and go on
The new rule required that the
applicant offer evidence of eli-
Another rule specifies that all
welfare cases be investigaved
thoroughly for eligibility every
A third regulation w a 1 1 d
penalize states which pe-:mit
large numbers of ineligibles to
get on their- welfare rolls.
Under this provision, a state
which permitted ineligibles to
exceed 3 per cent of its total
caseload would lose one per-
centage point of federal match-
ing for each percentage point of
ineligibles above 3 per cent.
The committee said it believed
the level of ineligibility naLion-
ally exceeded 5 per cent.
Laird's order was similar to
one issued last August covering
administrative discharges grant-
ed under less than, henoraule
conditions because of pososession
or use of drugs. The latest rul-
ing was to bring punitive dil-
charges into line with that pol-
icy, the Pentagod said.
Officials said the new ruling
affects only about 200 men who
received bad conduct or dis-
honorable discharges for drug
use before July 7, 1971.
The armed forces have since
stopped issuing dishonorable dis-
charges solely for drug use or
