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.

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
