Thank you for the information, however, I will need clarification of your facts and your question. I apologize for the previous posts you had to respond to, that is the Site's automatic posting system. We don't work for the Site and those postings aren't particularly helpful to getting to the issue and answer, so we often have to ask the relevant questions.

In any event, please tell me why you were discharged with an OTH. In other words, what was the underlying misconduct and how was it disposed of before being discharged? Did you have a court-martial or an Article 15 hearing and when (what year) did this take place? Also, you say you received an upgrade, can you be more specific? To what? A General or Honorable and what does your new DD 214 or 215 say as to reason for discharge and what is your separation code (3 letters)? Finally, what service were you in?
