hello! You certainly can contact your Congressman for assistance. But for your legal options, you basically have two: appealing to the ABCMR or demanding a review board under 10 USC 1554a (a new board created after 2008 NDAA). You will have to appeal to get your rights vindicated, but I think it is worth it. If you have any questions, let us know.
Posting in the forums will get more attention because most people don't look at the user profiles.
