I have an uncharacterized discharge from 2000 and I am

I have an uncharacterized discharge from 2000 and I am trying to get a Security Endorsement from the State of Texas. One of the disqualifiers for that endorsement is a dishonorable discharge. However, I am currently being considered for denial since the person reviewing my application admits ignorance to what 'Uncharacterized Discharged' is defined as. In my case, it was due to an ELS. What could I point her to for her to be corrected?

About me: Discharged with General, Under Honorable

About me: Discharged with General, Under Honorable conditions (CPT-03) for positive UA for the drug adderall- Was fingerprinted and interviewed by CID- never admitted to willingly using the drug (small nanogram amount detected fyi)- Currently applying for a job with an airline that is subject to FAA regulations/ FBI NCIC background check- The airline called me and said they were forwarding my record to the legal department for review because of the incident. She couldn't tell me exactly what it said on my report (probably because she rarely see's this incident) I am asking you before I spend the time to get my own copy of the FBI report... My questions 1: What do you think it says on my report. 2: Even though the drug was never in my possession (or any evidence there was) is it considered 'possession of a controlled substance'? 3: How should I approach the Airline if denied employment or asked about the incident? 4: Is this use considered a felony or anything else that would hinder my employment?

I'm 19 years old, I've been in the navy for 11 months and

My name is***** 19 years old, I've been in the navy for 11 months and I'm about to go to a DRB (disciplinary review board) for being caught stealing $87 worth of goods from walmart (lingerie and jewelry). I concealed the items in my reusable grocery bag which I used as a purse. My chief had to come down to the walmart to prove that I lived in the barracks and he was shown the tapes and everything. I was very cooperative. Charges are pressed against me and I'm currently awaiting to go to my arraignment.Before this, I have been an exceptional sailor. At my 6 month long A school I graduated top of my class as ATI Honor Grad, I had over 40 volunteer hours, and I got an outstanding on my PRT. 3 months ago I arrived at my ultimate command; all of my quals are done but I hadn't started volunteering yet. I did just join my command's MWR but did so only a couple weeks ago and have only attended a couple meetings. I plan to volunteer this weekend. My LPO's adored me, as I was a very hard working worker.Knowing all of this, will I likely go to Captain's Mast? Will they look at the things I achieved while in A school or will they only look at what I've achieved whilst at my current command? Will I be separated from the Navy? Would I get a dishonorable discharge if they did? Of course you don't know the exact answers, but if you know of how a similar case turned out, it would help settle my nerves immensely!Thank you
