The Air Force Discharge Review Board (AFDRB), acting on behalf of the Secretary of the Air Force, reviews applicant's administrative discharges based on standards of equity, propriety and/or to change the reason for discharge.  Bad-conduct discharges given as a result of a special court-martial may only be upgraded based on clemency.  General court-martials and discharges over 15 years must be submitted to the Air Force Board for Correction of Military Records (AFBCMR).  The AFDRB is not authorized to revoke any discharge, reinstate any person who has been separated from the Air Force, or to recall any person to active duty.
