Military DD293 Form Status Check?

I submitted for DD293 in February11 to change attempt to upgrade my discharge code from a RE4 to something more...workable. I would love to re-enlist, am more than intelligent and fit enough, but I am worried that something happened to the form. How do I check he status of my mailed DD293?

Is it even possible? Practical?

    Your DD form 293 may have found its way to "file 13" as it has nothing to do with trying to change a RE code.

    The DD form 293 is the form used to ask the NDRB about an upgrade in your type of discharge. The NDRB has no authority to change a RE code, that is part of the purview of the BCNR and requires a DD form 149.

    What is your type of discharge and SPD code?

    Unless the RE4 was given in error by your branch its not going to change. And when I say error I mean the person typing it up sneezed and hit 4 instead of, let's be generous and say 2.
