Board for Correction of Naval Records (BCNR) 

 

Assistant for BCNR Matters

What the Assistant does:  Acts as liaison for Navy Personnel Command (NPC) to the Board for Correction of Naval Records.

Background:  The BCNR was created by Congress in 1947 to provide a method for correction of errors or removal of injustices from current and former Navy and Marine Corps member's records without the necessity for private legislation.

The BCNR is not a branch of NPC.  It is a separate shore activity under the direction and supervision of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Manpower and Reserve Affairs.

Law governs BCNR by 10 U.S.C. Sec 1551-1557


Helpful Hints for Petitioning BCNR

1.  Download the DD Form 149, print it, fill it out COMPLETELY, and sign it.  You must sign the application as BCNR cannot act on your behalf without your signature authorizing them, through the Privacy Act, to review your record.

2.  Identify the specific error or injustice, submit sufficient information to permit BCNR to determine whether relief is warranted and include any other relevant information.  If in doubt include it, that information could be what ultimately proves that an error or injustice exists.

3.  When you have completed the application, you have two options; you can fax your application to the Board or mail it to the following address:

BCNR's fax number is (703) 604-3437
