I was pulled over, took a breathalyzer and was never charged

I was pulled over, took a breathalyzer and was never charged with a DUI while stationed in Georgia. As a result I was given a general discharge from the ARMY. Fast forward 20 yrs while trying to renew my CO drivers licence I was told that my driving privilege is under restraint from the state of GA preventing me from renewing in CO. I never had a GA drivers license and I have renewed twice in CO since my discharge, till now. How do I go about proving to the state of GA that I was not charged with a DUI and get this restriction removed so I can renew my CO license?

I asked you regarding pro bono military legal assistance for my son, which was wonderful. He is having to leave that area tomorrow and would need help in Sacramento County.

My son is in Army AIT currently and has a large left varicocele larger than the teste. The Army does not know about this issue but it may be on his medical records from several years back. He forgot to mention it at meps and is worried that a doctor will notice it on a medical exam and he will be kicked out. This issue causes him no pain and has completed basic training without any pain. Will he get in trouble for this?
