Military Boards of Review in Texas

The military has two different boards of review that can evaluate discharges, each with different areas of authority. The board to which you will apply depends on the circumstances of your case. These boards include the Discharge Review Board (DRB) and the Board for Correction of Military Records (BCMR).

The particular board where you need to file your request is complicated and based on your specific facts and circumstances.

When you file your request with a board, the Board has the authority to:

  1. Upgrade your discharge
  2. Change the reason for separation
  3. Change your reentry code

In order to prevail with this action, you must be able to prove that your discharge was incorrect or unfair. Presenting proper evidence is crucial in this matter, which is why you should have the representation of a capable military discharge upgrade lawyer such as Attorney Wade Faulkner. Wade Faulkner has filed cases with both Discharge Review Boards and with Boards for the Correction of Military Records. You need an attorney with experience to help you navigate this complicated area of the law.
