You can apply to the Board for Correction of Records for an upgrade based on clemency. However, that is very difficult to accomplish.
The Navy/Marines are the hardest of all.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
