    Answered . You can always apply. You have a better chance at obtaining federal employment if you upgrade your characterization of discharge. In order to have the characterization of discharge corrected or upgraded the only option you have it to apply to the appropriate military board for the correction of records in Washington D.C.

Feel free to give me a call to discuss further. The initial consultation is always free.
