Does a DD 215 serve as proper orders to revoke a valid DD

Hi, Does a DD 215 serve as proper orders to revoke a valid DD 214? If not what official form or process can nullify a valid DD 214?JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: My finance is stateside and was ending 22 or 23 years of Navy service with a medical retirement.JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: Its a long sorted story. We've benefited POSITIVELY from the assistance of Mr. Simmons before. At this point we are on the other side of a court martial, approaching the CCA. I have been diligent in my research for errors and we've been fortunate from that. I've always had an issue with the "DD 215" that was used to pull him back - never seemed legitimate to me.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just that this was a valid DD 214, by military instruction. He had signed a legal hold, but the ACC (code was never updated), he was reporting to his command that it appeared that the Secretary of the Navy was moving forward with his retirement and they encouraged him to continue forward, as long as SECNAV did.
