Discharge Upgrade Tool
The Department of Veterans Affairs has recently launched an online tool to assist veterans with upgrading their military discharges. The tool includes a questionnaire that will walk veterans through a step by step process that pertains specifically to their situation. This new tool will be most helpful for veterans suffering from bad conduct discharges. Veterans chances of upgrading their discharge increase if they can prove their separation was linked to traumatic brain injury (TBI); sexual assault or harassment during military service; sexual orientation under the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy; or mental health conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder. To apply for a discharge upgrade visit the Vets.gov benefits website.
