The Mayor’s Office of Veterans Affairs is partnering with the National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) to host a DD-214 Upgrade Clinic and Information Session. This clinic will provide DC Veterans with the procedure for upgrading less-than-honorable discharges followed by an individual consultation with an attorney from NVLSP.
Tuesday, March 13th
9am – 10am: Informational Session
10am – 3pm: Individual Appointments with NVLSP Attorneys
441 4th St NW Washington, DC 20001
Informational Session Conference Room #1114 (11th Floor)
Individual Appointments Room 870 North (8th Floor)
How to Schedule an Appointment:
Call the Mayor’s Office of Veterans Affairs at 202-724-5454
Walk-ins are always welcome, but those with appointments will be seen first. All veterans and providers are welcome to attend!
Having a less than honorable discharge can prevent a veteran from accessing U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs benefits and services including health care and other social services as well as District level programs and benefits. The Mayor’s Office of Veterans Affairs is dedicated to ensuring that the service of our veterans is reflected in their military records so that they may be able to fully access the services and benefits they have earned.
All branches of the military consider you to have a strong case for a discharge upgrade if you can show your discharge was connected to any of these categories:
Mental health conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
Sexual assault or harassment during military service
Sexual orientation (including under the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy)
