Hello,Next year in April would have been my 20 year mark

Hello,Next year in April would have been my 20 year mark in the Air Force. I am gay and me and my foreign boyfriend have been living separately for four years (out of 9) due to immigration laws so the plan was to get out next April. Last spring I took the tests to get promoted to the next higher grade. I passed the test but the condition to put up the new grade was to reenlist for another 2 years, which is what I did. Now I realise it that it was a mistake. My personal life is suffering greatly from my career and after four years of living apart I should have just retired next year to finally move with my boyfriend in Belgium. Is there any way I can get out of the two year reenlistment (and new grade) at my 20 year mark as was initially planned and get my retirement benefits?

I was kicked out of the Army shortly after entering my AIT.

I was kicked out of the Army shortly after entering my AIT. Someone heard me talking to my ex-lover and reported me for being gay. I have an uncharacterized discharge with a separation code of JRB and and Reenlistment code of RE 4. Can this be upgraded now that the law regarding openly gay personnel to serve? I was more or less "bullied" into leaving stating that if I fought it, I could be court martialed for fraud because I didn't state the truth on my enlistment papers. Not looking for money or benefits, just maybe some good deals with housing or interest rates for veterans as I would have stayed in otherwise.

In the Navy Sept.86 to Feb89. Recieved Other than Honorable, Drug Abuse Marijuana. I intentionally got caught by a shipmate smoking pot. I was under investigation by the NIS for being gay. I was in the closet and didn't want being a homosexual on the discharge. This was known by the shipmates and my chief petty officer. Is my discharge upgradable to reflect the truth?

I plead guilty to fraternization and extramarital affair (me 04 her E4) in 2011... served 90 days minus good time at MiraMar NAS. I came home to my reserve unit, and was told not to come to my MUTA's/BA's. Then had a separation board in which I was separated with a general DC under HC. I am a NG and Reserve 04 with 19 yrs good service. Officers on the separation board worked as NG for the CMDR of the unit trying to separate me. I understand it has already gone thru a "standard appeal". Is there any way to still get my retirement with 19years??
