Thanks for the chance to assist
Its true, if you have an RE4 code, you can not enlist...particularly not today with the poor economy recruitment
is way up, so the need to grant waivers way down.
Its also true that you can upgrade the code, possibly, but its very difficult to do. You have the right form.
To be successful, you will need to demonstrate, under the circumstances, that an upgrade to the code is the appropriate result in your case. Typically this would be done by showing that the result at the time was wrong for some reason...for example if you can show that you rated an RE3 but were given an RE4 improperly.
The board will also consider your post service conduct, but this to a lesser degree than than your service conduct.
You should start with a request of your records. You can request them here
Unlike the urban legend, there is no "automatic upgrade" for discharges...in fact only a small percentage of requests are granted.
To have the greatest chance for success you should consider working with an attorney that can help you assemble the package you will submit. A google search under "military lawyer upgrade discharge" will net you several prospects...I would talk to several to see if one can be of help...but understand this is a long shot...beware of promises.
