I was very happy to hear the NCO that got discharged up the

I was very happy to hear the NCO that got discharged for beating up the child molester in Afghanistan was re-instated to active duty and cleared of charges. I know that he initially was given the punishment outlined in the MCM as he was guilty of the charges. I make reference to that because I was wondering if my case might be considered equally. I was a CW2 in the Army, charged and convicted at General Court Martial for BAH Fraud in 2001. Given 6 months detention and Dishonorable Discharge. I did the crime and paid back every dime, I plead guilty and made no excuses. I had been in the Army for over 18.5 years and my career was exemplary. Generally speaking, I got what I deserved according to the MCM, but never felt Justice was served. I want to finish what I started and complete my 20 years and retire Honorably. Is this possible in any way? I consider our two cases somewhat similar in the area of Justice.
