Military Discharge Upgrade and Review I [01:01:10]

A less than fully Honorable discharge has many consequences: it disqualifies the veteran from many VA benefits; it can impact a veteran’s employment opportunities; and it may cause feelings of shame, inadequacy, and anger.  We will explain how you can help a veteran upgrade his or her discharge by applying to the Discharge Review Boards and Boards for Correction of Military Records.

  • The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and Character of Military Service
  • Post-Military Service Problems for Those with Less Than Fully Honorable Discharges
  • Military Discharge Review Boards and Boards for Correction of Military/Naval Records
  • Reasons for Upgrade: Equity or Propriety; Correcting Errors or Injustices; Clemency
