Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT)
In September 2011, Section 654 of Title 10 of the U.S. Code, commonly referred to as Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT), was repealed.
  1. As a result the NDRB may grant a request to upgrade a character of discharge to Honorable, and/or change the narrative reason for separation.
  2. The NDRB normally grants requests where Homosexual Act/Conduct/Admission was the only basis for discharge and no misconduct was a factor for the Discharge/Narrative Reason.  An Applicant's misconduct is a factor when determining if an upgrade/change is warranted.
  3. Under this new DADT Repeal, Applicants are permitted to resubmit their case to the NDRB for a Document Review with the DADT Repeal as the basis for an upgrade/change.
