My son made a foolish decision that cost him a separation from West Point. He resigned in lieu of an investigation. He still has every desire to become an Army Officer. He was told by the Trial Defense Service that he could have his General Discharge under honorable conditions upgraded to an Honorable Discharge after six months. We have discovered that he will not be able to get into ROTC until this discharge status is changed or until he receives a waiver (which is not happening at this time). He is now realizing that his foolishness is lasting longer than he ever imagined. I have gone through over 100 records and did a search through all the rest of the review board records as well as the other academies looking for a cadet who was separated or resigned and desired to get an upgrade to continue their quest of being an army officer. Am I missing something here? I can't believe that none of the resigned or separated cadet who were given General Discharges did not want to continue to pursue a position in the army. I have wondered if the board does something different with the cadets since they are not enlisted personnel. Does anyone know??? Several Questions: 1. Is the upgrade as easy as TDS said? They said that all he had to do was fill out the appropriate form. 2. Are there any documents needed to accompany the upgrade form? 3. Since we are trying to enroll in the Spring and get into ROTC in the fall do we have to wait six months to submit the paperwork. Please help. Thanks.
