LexisNexis® Legal & Professional today announced that it has added the US Department of Defense (DOD) Boards for the Correction of Military Records to its flagship Lexis Advance® offering, creating the only online resource for veterans and their advocates to search military record change information from each branch of the military, comprehensively and all in one place. The action is part of the company’s ongoing Pro Bono Task Force work to support American military veterans.

“All of us at LexisNexis are proud to help veterans by providing them and their representatives the tools and resources they need to address military service and discharge records that prevent veterans from accessing vital care and services,” said Kermit Lowery, retired US Army JAG Officer and current vice president of legal for the North American Legal Research Solutions business of LexisNexis.

The unique set of content added by LexisNexis contains more than 127,000 decisions and changes addressing errors or removing injustices to individual military records and discharge status of service members in the United States Army, Air Force, Navy (including Marine Corps) and Coast Guard between 2008 to the present. It is sourced from the DOD BCMR Board of Decisions and is now, for the first time, offered in a combined, searchable database on Lexis Advance through the Premier Federal Core Agency & Admin Materials collection.

Access to a unified database of this information is a helpful new tool for individual veterans and the lawyers, organizations and others who advocate for them. The ability to conduct a single search, find and assess changes to military records and discharge status across all branches of the military helps advocates find precedent and see trends and patterns into what worked to achieve a record change or discharge upgrade when it was legitimately warranted. This is particularly important for veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) who may have been discharged under less than honorable circumstances, preventing their access to VA health care services, VA home loans, educational benefits and temporary shelter if homeless.

“Any veteran suffering from PTSD and TBI has legitimate health concerns, and they should be treated as such,” said Lowery. “For those facing challenges getting the care and services they need based on their discharge status, if we can help them and their legal advocates find ways to open up access to those services where warranted, we feel we are doing the right thing by the men and women who serve our country,” said Lowery.
