EPTS, Permanently aggravated by service condition

VA Disability

Hello Brother & Sister Veterans. I have a question that has caused me some concern, every since I finally received all my medical records from the NPRC, addressing when I separated from the Military in 1992. I was directed by an MNRB TO MEB. Diagnosis was :Symptomatic pes planus , condition EPTS , the Doc stated” Due to the pain in both feet, the patient is unable to run, participate in physical training, or stand in formation, and is unable to perform in MOS, in spite of permanent profile given in 1990:. The MEBD form states” permanently aggravated by service.”
Question is this, if that condition existed, and the documents support a permanently aggravated by service” condition/disability, should my discharged have been a medical?
Btw, I just signed and sent off a 20-0995, the claim was closed, but I received additional medical records from being stationed AT SHAPE & EUCOM, Not going to complain, just thankful it came in. Still need an answer for the above question., Thanks
Thanks in advance for any insight and recourse. I am a a disabled Vet, served both USMC and USARMY.
