Another Question regarding Colonel Scott

I have another question regarding the profile of Colonel Scott.  I used the template provided for Veteran Recognition.  I removed it because, and I guess this is automatic, it said "discharged".  He died in service.  Very different than being discharged.  Can I do something for this?

Thanks, Betty

It is just the element identifier for where that text is displayed by the sticket..   it is for exited service, retired, discharged, resigned, Kia, died of wounds, etc.  It is usually explained elsewhere on the profile, but you can also add Kia, Dow, etc to the date on that element so it displays on the sticker if you think that will make it clearer to the person reading it

Thank you, Keith.  I will do what you said. I didn't want any one to think he discharged vs. killed in action.  Thank you so much!
