TVC Discharge Upgrade Program

Would you like assistance in upgrading your discharge?

The Veterans Consortium's Discharge Upgrade Program provides free legal representation nationwide to veterans with Other Than Honorable discharges due to conduct related to:

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Military Sexual Trauma (MST)
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Don't Ask, Don't Tell
  • Anti-LGBTQIA+ policies

We can also assist veterans discharged under Don't Ask, Don't Tell regardless of discharge type, as well as veterans seeking transgender name changes.

PLEASE NOTE: Veterans with a General ‘under honorable conditions’ discharge usually do not qualify for our representation unless they are a survivor of military sexual trauma with a mental health diagnosis.







The best way to apply to our program is online. You can fill out our intake form using the button below. Our goal is to respond to every intake within 14 business days. Please be patient as we have a very high volume of intakes every week.
