Boards of Review Reading Rooms

This is the Department of Defense Electronic Reading Room for the Military Departments' Boards for Corrections of Military/Naval Records (BCM/NR) and the Discharge Review Boards (DRB). The reading room contains the decisional documents for each of the Boards from October 1998 to the present for public research. The personal identifiable information (PII) and non-public information have been redacted (removed) from these documents. Decision documents are added by the end of each quarter of the year (31 March, 30 June, 30 September, and 31 December), adding decisions finalized in the preceding quarter. This website is not designed for applicants to obtain the decision on their application or obtain the status of their application. Decisions on applications to these boards are sent directly to the applicants as soon as the board issues the decision. If you wish to request a specific decisional document or have questions on the status of a current application, please contact the appropriate military department board directly using the links shown below.
