It would appear to me, related to prior military service, if you can pass the NICS background check for a handgun then you're eligible for CHL.

What you do not qualify for is the 50% discount given to prior members of the armed services who have been honorably discharged.

The other stuff you mentioned I'm not sure about.
The military service also comes into play under Federal law. Dishonorable discharge is a federal disqualifier, but other than honorable should not be a factor.
Yes, that is why I included the statement "if you can pass the NICS back ground check for a hand gun purchase". If you can not pass the NICS you can not get a CHL.
