Didn't Know Where To Ask This Question

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




This question is NOT a VA matter.

It pertains to an error on my DD214 indicating an incorrect "spin" code.

I recently found out that my JPB code means I was separated from service for drug use.

There is no evidence at all indicating any drug use in my military records and constitutes a falsification of my honorable military service record.

I also found a CDAAC report in my claims file where a counselor at my duty station falsely reported that, prior to my enlistment, I had three criminal convictions and had been incarcerated for (3) three years.


I entered the Army as a 22 year old college graduate with no convictions, not even misdemeanors.

I want my DD214 corrected... but I don't know where to start.

After all these years, I learn that the Army "blacklisted" me with a code which would hinder potential employment opportunities after my ETS.

Being rated at 100%, I don't think this code has damage your records at all due to the fact that VA did grant you service connection.  With all that said, you would have to go about changing your discharge and or your DD 214. You would need to fill out a DD 149 or a DD form 293 and submit it or them to MILITARY RECORDS.  It could take up to about a year or so, adding my Meritorious Medals took about a year.  You can pull these forms up online, fill them out and then send them to the correct branch.

Ok pete.

I'm aware that this isn't a VA compensation matter, but thanks.

I'm going to send whoever I need to send it to, the DoD Form 149.

I agree with Pete, he has given good advice.  "If I recall" correctly, it seems like NVLSP will represent you correcting records at no cost.  Im not sure if it has any thing to do with a DD214, I do know NVLSP requires a DD214, I dont know if they can get it corrected or not.  

You can contact them and ask.  https://www.nvlsp.org/what-we-do/lawyers-serving-warriors/board-for-correction-of-military-records-bcmr/

Im "virtually certain" NVLSP does not charge Veterans for its services.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
