Each service branch has a Board for Correction of Military Records / Naval Records (BMCR / BCNR) to correct errors and injustices in military records after all lower level administrative remedies have been exhausted. These Boards also review discharges of former servicemembers over 15 years ago and discharges awarded at a general court-martial.
Veterans seeking correction of their military records or other forms of relief may petition the relevant military department for correction of their records. The veteran bears the burden of proving an error or injustice in their records and why the correction is necessary. This burden can be extremely difficult to meet given the thousands of petitions received annually by correction boards.
