RECORD OF PROCEEDINGS
AIR FORCE BOARD FOR CORRECTION OF MILITARY RECORDS
IN THE MATTER OF: DOCKET NUMBER: BC-2005-01307
INDEX CODE: 128.14
HEARING DESIRED: NO
MANDATORY CASE COMPLETION DATE: 21 OCTOBER 2006
APPLICANT REQUESTS THAT:
His records be corrected to reflect enrollment in the Enlisted
College Loan Repayment Program (ECLRP).
APPLICANT CONTENDS THAT:
There was supposed to be an amendment made by his recruiter
stating that he wanted to be enrolled in the CLRP Program.
In support of the appeal, applicant submits a personal statement.
Applicant's complete submission, with attachment, is at Exhibit
STATEMENT OF FACTS:
Applicant enlisted in the Delayed Entry/Enlistment Program (DEP)
on 14 November 2002 and enlisted in the Regular Air Force on
3 June 2003 in the grade of airman basic, for a period of six
AIR FORCE EVALUATION:
HQ AFPC/DPPAE recommends the applicant be denied. Based on all
the enlistment documents submitted by the applicant, no proof to
support his claim and the AF Form 3008, Supplement to Enlistment
Agreement, clearly reflects that the applicant elected to not
participate or was not qualified.
A complete copy of the evaluation is at Exhibit C.
APPLICANT'S REVIEW OF AIR FORCE EVALUATION:
On 3 June 2005, a copy of the Air Force evaluation was forwarded
to the applicant for review and response within 30 days. As of
this date, no response has been received by this office.
THE BOARD CONCLUDES THAT:
1. The applicant has exhausted all remedies provided by
existing law or regulations.
2. The application was timely filed.
3. Insufficient relevant evidence has been presented to
demonstrate the existence of error or injustice. We took notice
of the applicant's complete submission in judging the merits of
the case; however, a majority of the Board does not find his
uncorroborated assertions of miscounseling sufficiently
persuasive to override the rationale provided by the Air Force
office of primary responsibility. In this respect, a majority
notes that, at the time of enlistment, the applicant initialed
indicating he was counseled on the CLRP option and elected not to
participate in the program. A majority of the Board, therefore,
agrees with the recommendation of the Air Force office of primary
responsibility and concludes that the applicant has failed to
sustain his burden that he has suffered either an error or
injustice. In view of the above and absent evidence to the
contrary, a majority finds no basis to recommend granting the
relief sought in this application.
THE BOARD RECOMMENDS THAT:
A majority of the panel finds insufficient evidence of error or
injustice and recommends the application be denied.
The following members of the Board considered this application in
Executive Session on 25 August and 12 September 2005, under the
provisions of AFI 36-2603:
Mr. Gregory H. Petkoff, Panel Chair
Ms. Jean A. Reynolds, Member
Ms. Sharon B. Seymour, Member
By a majority vote, the Board recommended denial of the
