  1. Show cause board-Chapter Elimination Processing (BOI): I was issued an initiation of elimination under the provisions of Army REG 600-8-24 for a misconduct and derogatory information: fact that I received an Article 15 for larceny of a value of about $6,000. I received Article in 07 and was served with elimination chapter paperwork in September 08. Flagging action was initiated. I was schedule to attend CCC in Oct 08 but was not allowed. My promotion board met in Mar 09 and 10 but still the BOI/Elimination process started or completed. I was an 2x passover for promotion and received a involuntary separation in Oct 10. I was also told I could not join the Reserves by HRC Actions because they did not want me to come back into the Army. Is there anything I can do to get justice and return back to military service.
