There are actually seven different types of discharge characterization:
Uncharacterized - For entry level separations where the member has served less than 180 days when notifed 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.

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.
The five types of discharge are as follows: 1. Honorable 2. General (under honorable conditions) 3. Other than honorable 4. Bad conduct 5. Dishonorable
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.
The way I was explained the condition of this Discharge, is that it is UNCHARACTERIZED, and most times "UNDER HONORABLE CONDITIONS", as to say Honorable and does not bar you from reentry into the Military after a due course of time. Supposedly, it can become honorable under certain conditions, mayhaps after 6 months of service with the Military. In some cases, as when a commendable soldier cannot pass a specific training, he/she can become eligible for the General "Under Honorable" Discharge, upon exiting the Military. After 6 Months of Military Service, one can become eligible for Veteran Status, gaining government due Veteran Benefits. SPC MEDINA
Yes, you can if there is a vacancy.
If you are referring to an Honorable Discharge from the military after having been convicted of reckless driving - I would say your chances are probably pretty good if the rest of your military service was exemplary. At the very least you might receive a General DIscharge Under Honorable Conditions.
If you have an other-than-honorable discharge (general or dishonorable) from the military, you are generally ineligible for a law enforcement job.
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.
Finish your time of enlistment, hopefully without any serious disciplinary actions. Believe me , a less than Honorable discharge will affect the rest of your life. Even a General Discharge Under Honorable Conditions can be prejudicial to your future success.
General (Under Honorable Conditions). If a member's service has been honest and faithful, it is appropriate to characterize that service under honorable conditions. Characterization of service as General (under honorable conditions) is warranted when significant negative aspects of the member's conduct or performance of duty outweigh positive aspects of the member's military conduct or performance of duty outweigh positive aspects of the record. A General (under honorable conditions) characterization of discharge may jeopardize a member's ability to benefit from the Montgomery G.I. Bill if they, in fact, had contributed. Moreover, the member will not normally be allowed to reenlist or enter a different military service
You cannot get an honorable discharge with patterns of misconduct under Chapter 14-12b. You can only receive a General Discharge or Other than Honorable discharge. You can try to have it upgraded once you are released by the military by contacting your branches' review board agency.
usually a person not suitable for military service or unable to maintain an acceptable level of military adherence.............. A General (Under Honorable Conditions) characterization 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.
The official term is "Honorable Discharge." There are "Dis-Honorable Discharges" and because of the Vietnam War...now a "General Discharge."
No, it is a general discharge. General discharges may be elevated to Honorable Discharges through writen application of the discharged service member. The VA can assist with the aplication process.
A General or " General discharge under honorable conditions" may preclude participation in the GI bill, you will need to contact the department of Veterans affairs for a decision on your particular case.
