Claim for Benefits as a Result of Administrative Upgrade of Former Army Member's Discharge
B-188041: Apr 22, 1977
- Full Report:
A former Army member claimed benefits based on a change in his military records to reflect an honorable rather than an undesirable discharge. The discharge absolutely terminates a member's contractual relationship with the government regarding military pay and allowances, and subsequent changes in the discharge do not create any right to military pay for periods after the discharge date.
