If your discharge was more than 15 years ago, this is not going to be an easy task and you will have to file a DD Form 149 with the Discharge Review Board for your service branch and ask them to correct the record. In your DD Form 149 you can only discuss how the original classification was in error or an injustice and explain why you believe it should be changed.
