I had a question about how Captain's Mast's are notated in

Customer Question

I had a question about how Captain's Mast's are notated in one's record and if there is any way of having it removed?
JA: Are you overseas or stateside?
Customer: Stateside. I'm currently a civilian, but I was in the Navy from 2005-2010.
JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?
Customer: I don't have a chain of command: I'm not in the military. I'm not sure what you mean.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Sure: the Captain's Mast was for showing up late and "Missing Ship's Movement". However, I immediately checked into my parent command onshore and was fully accounted for the whole time.
