Each of the military services maintains a discharge review board with authority to change, correct or modify a discharge or dismissal that is not issued by a sentence of a general court-martial. The board has no authority to address medical discharges. The Veteran or his surviving spouse, next of kin, or legal representative may apply for a review of discharge by writing to the military department concerned, using Department of Defense Forms DD293 and DD149. You can obtain these forms from your local Veterans Services Office, VA regional office (call 800-827-1000, or from any Veterans Service Organization (VFW, American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, etc.).
