Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Yes. You may submit a request to the Army Discharge Review Board to upgrade your discharge.
You will write to the board, explain why you left your unit, the circumstances surrounding your absence, and the contributions you've made to society since that time, and ask that your discharge be upgraded.
The board can decide to upgrade your discharge, or decide to take no action.
There is a form for submission which can be found on this website:http://arba.army.pentagon.mil/abcmr-faq.cfm
