In any case, I'd visit your nearest Apple Store when you can. There are a few other potential issues you might want to investigate.

I'm guessing I just need to call them with my Mac's serial number and explain the situation and they will determine if it is eligible? Going to basically have to use Skype, no Apple stores here in Afghanistan for deployed service members
