I think to be retired on a pension you have to be at least 30%. If you are retired from wounds or injuries in line of duty it would be honorable, but maybe not a military retirement depending on the extent of wounds or injuries. Do you get Tricare?

The answer is yes all retirees receive a retirement certificate( considered an honorable discharge certificate) regardless if it is for medical reasons or length of service. In fact, if married the spouse should also received a certificate of appreciation......... at least this is the way the US Army does things
