I apologize for the late response due to the login acting interesting with me.
What would a misuse of discretion look like when i had a recommendation from my command for an honorable discharge, 4.2/4.3 pro-cons and the other things i listed in my initial question.
I was given the idea of speaking to my equal opportunity rep. because i spoke to legal at the time i received the news and asked them if everyone in my position gets the same as i just did and he said, " You are the first one i've seen".
Also, I was considering a request mast but not until i know on what grounds or how to conduct the process properly so i don't look like a fool while speaking to any of the higher above's especially if i make it to the man who wrote me the discharge. I will also this weekend type up a rebuttal on how I think this should be changed to show my dedication.
If i make it to the civilian world without finishing this, how much would a military lawyer cost to assist in the resubmittal to a Discharge review board. Chances of success? Generally how long of a process will that take.
I apologize for the multiple questions/ scenarios that ive listed for advice on but I don't want to miss my opportunity or just lay down on this one. I appreciate your help in this
