Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You have to file for removal of the record, since you were found not guilty, with the Board of Corrections: http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/correcting-records.html
Here is an application sample: http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/forms/eforms/dd0149.pdf
Also, here are some instructions about the process: http://usmilitary.about.com/cs/generalinfo/a/dischargeupg.htm
So, you would have to file to have your record corrected to remove the not-guilty charges from it.
