Theoretically anyone can be approved for a section 8 voucher. Generally there is a limit on your income, and you must also qualify for section 8. For example, you must be a US citizen or legal resident of the United States; must not have any violent felony records; must not be a registered sex offender; must not be convicted of public assistance fraud or any other crime which involved the section 8 program; and you must not have been evicted from a public housing unit or from any other unit you rented under the voucher program. You must also not have a substance abuse, including alcohol abuse, problem unless you can demonstrate that you have been to or are receiving substance abuse treatment. Finally, you must not have a history of abusing the housing choice voucher or public housing program, such as by allowing anyone to live there without approval.

The section 8 discharge, was used when a service man was deemed mentally unfit for military service.

"Section 8" is an old World War II term--it comes from Section VIII of Army Regulation 615-360, which was the enlisted discharge regulation. In Today's Modern Action Army, psychological discharges are handled under the Medical Discharge regulations.

Section 8 discharges didn't just get handed out to people who were mentally unsuited for service; this was how they got rid of sexual misconduct cases they couldn't or didn't want to court-martial. (Most gay guys got thrown out under Section 8.)
