Question 'from F. T., Spokane: "I was discharged from the army 2 months ago. Do I still have to carry my draft card with me? And was I automatically placed in the reserve? I was a sergeant." "No" is the answer to both questions. Query from Mrs. G. C. R., Ra- leieh, N. Car.: "My husband was killed In an accident before he applied for his terminal leave bond. Can I apply for it now?" If your husband was killed after discharge from active duty, then you can. Write (if he was in the army) to: Finance Officer, U. S. Army, Finance Center, 4300 Goodfellow Blvd., St. Louis, Mo. If he was in the navy or marines, write Chief of Naval Personnel, Navy Dept., Washington 25, D. C. If in the coast guard, write Commandant, U. S. C. G., Washington, 25, D. C. But if your husband was killed before actual discharge, you are not entitled to collect his terminal leave pay. Question from E. H., Pawnee, Okla.: "Even though I worked last summer for this state's security employment commission, I can't get the answer to this question. Can a veteran sign up for the self- employment readjustment allowance as a free lance writer?" Yes. However, the veteran who does so may have to. give some indication that he really is a writer, or has tried to be. A few rejection slips from magazines, or something he's written that's been printed, should provide satisfactory evidence to the unemployment compensation board. Question from T. G., Jackson, Mich.: "Regarding a veteran's reemployment rights under the selective service act: During the one year guarantee of re-employment, can a veteran with less seniority than a non-veteran (doing the same kind of work) be laid off while the non-veteran is retained?" Yes. There is no "supersenior- ity" in re-employment rights. The U. S. supreme court decided that many months ago. Question from E. G., Central City, Ky.: "Can a. dishonorable discharge be changed to an honorable one?" If it wasn't given as the result of a "general court martial, there is a chance it can be changed. The discharge can be appealed under-section 301 of the GI bill. The Red Cross or any service organization, such as the Legion, or the VFW, or the AVC can supply the appeal forms and give aid in filling them out.
