In order to have your DD214 corrected you have to file a DD149 with the Army Review Boards Agency in Washington D.C. My office handles these types of matters on a regular basis. Feel free to give me a call. The initial consult is free. Good luck.
You can correct using a form available online (DD149). Government will issue a DD-215 (correction to DD 214) with the correct info on it. Some folks can do it themselves. Some hire an attorney to cover all the bases for them. You'll likely need to document your award--you can't simply 'declare' that you earned it.
