That I would never have annotated. I received a general discharge in 2004. The National Guard was taking General discHargett applicants during 2006. I believe my recruiter ommited information on my 2006 sf86. I am now doing my 10 year renewal and have noticed my discharge is an honorable from the Navy which is not the case, it was a General under Honorable conditions. I was granted a secret clearance and maintaineducation thru my time in the Guard from 2006 to 2011. I was then transferred to the Army under the Sanctuary program to receive my active duty retirement. I was never interviewed for the sf86 Inot 2006. I found copies of the old sf 86 and realized the incorrect entry. Now while filling out my new sf86 I am concerned that this is fraudulent. I contacted the recuiter and asked him about it here stated that it is not because my discharge was under Honorable condition. This does not bode well with me and I want to know how to right this misleadding wrong
