How hard is it to upgrade a general discharge under honorable conditions to an honorable discharge from the military?
Most discharges can be upgraded depending on the veterans conducts.99% of the time when a veteran gets a General Under Honorable its considered good enough for the the revue b…oard.That veteran is Entitle to all benifits!The Marines being discharged with less then Honorable will run into a stone wall due to the fact that that branch does frownes on upgrading any discharges!They feel they deserved what the got! The Navy Discharge Review Board (NDRB) reviews applications from Sailors and Marines seeking upgrades to their characterization of service and/or change to their narrative reason for separation. Regardless of characterization recieved, the applicant must prove inequity or impropriety in their separation process. Upgrades are fairly rare because very few applicant's present clear issues to show impropriety or inequity.
There are actually seven different types of discharge characterization: Uncharacterized - For entry level separations where the member has served less than 180 days when no…tifed of administrative separation. This can be recieved for a variety of different reasons. With respect to non-service related matters such as VA benefits, civilian employment etc, shall be considered as the equivilent of an Honorable or General (Under Honorable Conditions) Honorable - an Honorable discharge is warranted when the quality of a member's service has met the standards of accepted conduct and performance of duty for military personnel. General under honorable conditions - is appropriate if the member's service has been honest and faithful, but significant negative aspects of the member's conduct or performance outweighs positive aspects of the member's military record. Under Other Than Honorable Conditions (OTH) - is warranted when a member engages in conduct involving one or more acts or omissions that constitute a significant departure from the conduct expected of members of the armed forces. Bad Conduct - Is assigned as part of the sentence at Special or General court-martial. Dishonorable - The least favorable characterization. Recieved as part of the sentence at General court-martial. Dismissal - Equivilent to a Dishonorable, but reserved for commissioned officers. Recieved as part of the sentence at General court-martial.
You received a general discharge under honorable conditions Without getting into the details what are the odds of it being upgraded to an honorable discharge?
Answer An honorable discharge can, on rare occasions, be granted to a former service member (whose service was characterized as less than honorable) as an act of… clemency, should that person display exemplary post-service conduct and show evidence of outstanding post-service achievement in areas such as education and employment.
it is not bad it simply mean you were unable to perform for some personal reason you do not have to disclose most times after six months it turns into an honorable if you dont… get in trouble with the law you can go through the army review board and ask for and upgrade in discharge status and they will review you request and more than likely give it to ya The above information is incorrect. A General (Under Honorable Conditions) characterization is warranted when a member's service has been honest and faithful, but significant negative aspects of service outweigh the positive aspects of that service. Characterization of service NEVER has and NEVER will automatically upgrade to Honorable after six months. This is urban legend. If you apply to the Army Discharge Review Board (DRB) they will not just give it to you. You must prove inequity or impropriety in you separation proceedings or in your assigned characterization and/or separation code. Very few applications recieve the relief they are seeking.
It doesn't. The only way for a General (under honorable conditions) discharge to be upgraded is to go before the Board of appeals. Even then, your chances of getting an upgr…ade are slim (less than 1%) Even in the best of situations, if you did successfully appeal and get an upgrade, it would still be on your records because that (Honorable) was not the original characterization of discharge, and there is a code that identifies it as such. The above answer is partially correct. The characterization of service does not automatically upgrade to Honorable...ever. Members can apply to the Discharge Review Board (DRB) for their respective service to be considered for a change of characterization. Upgrades are few and far between.
The same Benefits as you would get, if it was a regular Honorable Discharge....except for the GI Bill. Only members with Honorable discharges are eligible for this benefit.
General discharge under honorable conditions with 6u reenlistment eligability can i got a job outside the military with such dischage?
usually a person not suitable for military service or unable to maintain an acceptable level of military adherence.............. A General (Under Honorable Conditions) charact…erization of service is warranted when a member's service has been honest and faithful but significant negative aspects of that service outweigh the positive aspects of service.
If you receive a General Discharge under honorable conditions can will you be able to receive unemployment benefits?
I believe you can............ No you Can't at least this is from experience in PA
You will need to contact you recruiter to have them see if you can come back in. The military is always changing the status of who can come back and who can stay in.
Yes. When you go to the unemployment office, tell them you are a vet - there should be a special veterans unemployment specialist in the office to help you.
Yes, typically after a three year waiting period. Look at your DD214 for the R-Code. The above answer is not entirely correct. Yes, you may be able to join. However, it will d…epend on the needs of the service, and has nothing to do with a waiting period. Also, the reason you were discharged, and your re-enlistment code (RE code) will have a bearing on your eligibility for waivers that may be required. Recruiters often give a variety of excuses to people trying to get back in because they don't want to waste their time with attempting to get waivers that are unlikely to be approved. In practicality, in today's downsizing environment, the chances of getting back in any of the services with a General (Under Honorable Conditions) are pretty slim. Only way to find out for sure is to visit a recruiter and see what they say.
No. You are not eligible for the GI bill or post 9/11 GI bill with anything other than honorable. You can however exercise this benefit if you have served a previous term of e…nlistment, before your general discharge, as the day you re-enlisted you were discharged honorably and re-enlisted same day. You only need to read through the VA website to find this info for yourself. When it comes to your future, why trust something that someone says without proof or evidence to back it up? Good luck. This is incorrect you can receive the post 9/11 bill with general discharge Actually, the first answer is correct technically. However, you should still contact the VA and request a determination of benefits. They may find your service to be Honorable for their purposes. This is sometimes the case if the VA finds the characterization of service was due to an isolated incident. Bottom line, apply for the benefit to see if the VA will find you to be eligible. No harm in trying.
No. It does NOT automatically upgrade to an honorable. it s a general discharge. It also strips the veteran who get it of their GI bill and benifits.
