In August 2011 our son, after having completed his first year at West Point, was tested positive for marijuana. He was subsequently separated and given a general discharge on his DD214. He is to graduate from Vanderbilt in May and will be interviewing for jobs this spring. We attempted to get a copy of his discharge papers from the National Archive but they had no records for him. Is this because he was a cadet? He needs to know how to address the military issue? Can anyone help us? He would like to attempt a request to have the discharge upgraded if he can.
