My name isXXXXX a licensed attorney. Glad to try and help out.
Thank you for your military service rendered on behalf of our nation!
Sure sorry for your circumstances, truly. My heart goes out to you.
Accordingly, I'm pleased to share some good news with you.
There is legal authority for applying to change military records, pursuant to 10 U.S.C. § 1552.
To do so, there are two steps you need to take, as follows:
(1) Obtain an official copy of your records from the National Archives and Records Administration:
Correcting Military Service Records
(2) Submit your request, which since less than 15 years have elapsed, will be this document:
DoD Form 293
If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me.
I hope all works out for you.
