No reason to go AWOL for that. It sounds like they were both giving you the run around. Your DI should have told you what you needed to get you son into DEERS. Once you got the paperwork sent to you at AIT, your DI could set you up with an appointment at admin so you could get your info updated. OR you could send a DA4187 with the paperwork to your PAC (admin section) and they could get the information entered.
To answer your question. You can get a waiver for ANYTHING. A waiver is not likely to be your course of action. You may be able to get your OTH changed to HON. That should be your first step. See your recruiter about this. Once your discharge status is changed you can work on getting your RE-4 removed or changed. Not sure how to do this. I would start with the recruiter. If that doesn't work, try your congressman. They should be able to get things moving if your recruiter is not.
Bottom line is, for something trivial like paperwork, you shouldn;t have gone AWOL. If you were only gone for a day or two it seems kinda harsh especially since you came back of your own accord. Though you should have gone back to your AIT location. Most likely you would have gotten NJP (Non Judicial Punishment), likely lost what rank you had but that would likely have been the end of it.

Couldn't someone in Maine just have sent those documents to you? In any event I agree that your recruiter is a good place to start. At least he/she will be able to point you in the right direction to get your discharge status changed.
I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which in truth, they are.
