I'm trying to upgrade my discharge from general under

Customer Question
I'm trying to upgrade...

I'm trying to upgrade my discharge from general under honorable to an honorable. Is this even possible, honestly? If so I have a LtCol that NJP'd me willing to write a LOR for my upgrade so I can attend school. What key points would he need to hit on?

Lawyer's Assistant: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?

No too expensive

Lawyer's Assistant: Is there anything else the Military Lawyer should be aware of?

I was discharged with a general under honorable due to two ARI's within a year from each other but my unit couldn't ADSEP me due to time restraints because the second was so close to me EAS.

Lawyer's Assistant: Our top Military Lawyer is ready to take your case. Just pay the $5 fully refundable deposit and I'll fill the Military Lawyer in on everything we've discussed. You can go back and forth with the Military Lawyer until you're 100% satisfied. We guarantee it.
