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 board.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. ( Full Answer )
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 rela…ted 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. ( Full Answer )
You have been diagnosed with ptsd and you have a good military record can your commander discharge you with anything less than an honorable discharge?
Answer . if you have a number of write ups, article 15's etc than yes. Your best bet is to get into medical treatment on base, make your chain of command aware of your diagnosis, and consult with JAG about your legal recourse and options. a medical chapter is certainly better than a bad conduc…t discharge, if it's headed there. Explore what benefits you are entitled to under varios discharges, chapters, and disability provisions. ( Full Answer )
Not it is not, with an other than honorable discharge you have been you can be dicharged (kicked out) for many reasons. These reasons being you conduct, not meeting weight standrads, testing positive fore a drug test, and many more. With an other than honorable discharge you also lose a good amount …of your benefits including you gi bill. An honorable discharge is where you have served out your contract in the military whether it be 4 years active duty or 6 years in the reserves. In other words you want to shoot for an honorable discharge ( Full Answer )
I assume you are talking about an early discharge? The ONLY person who can help you is the priest. You do not need to have any type of religion to talk to him, DON'T LIE. Be very convincing when you talk to him, Beg him to help you, Tell him how you have made the worst mistake of your life by joinin…g, Do exactly what he advises but without failure let him know how bad you want out. His job is to convince you to stay, but, He is the only one who will help you get out too. GOOD LUCK, Miracles take time, don't expect to be home in less than two months. add-on - no you don't have to go talk to the priest (oh and by the way there aren't priests in the military, there called chaplains, but there isn't a whole lot they can do to help you, they don't know the legal aspects of things ) and it depends on how you want to get discharged, if you want to get an honorable discharge (helps get jobs) talk to the career planner or Legal Assistance. If you don't care about honorable discharge, there are plenty of ways to get a dishonorable discharges (will limit you to what jobs you can get, and will also put you lower and the scale by employers as a possible candidate) ( Full Answer )
Yes, the military does not offer retirement pay to convictedfelons. This is true even if the member has been honorablydischarged.
It depends entirely on the circumstances of the discharge, the number of applicants applying, the ratio of the number of applicants as compared to the number of available positions, and internal regulations of the department. Also bear in mind that different departments have different standards and …different reasons for those standards. Long story short, if you have a general discharge from the military, be honest and upfront about it with the background investigator and apply to multiple departments as to find the best mutual fit for you.

No. Whereas during the US military's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy, it would be viewed as a violation and cause for discharge, that policy was repealed effective September 20, 2011. Since the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT), homosexual conduct is not a reason to be separated. If someone was d…ischarged under DADT, and did not recieve an Honorable characterization of service, they can apply to have this upgraded. The Navy Discharge Review Board (NDRB) is expediting these applications. If no misconduct was involved, the characterization will change to Honorable, the narrative reason for separation will change to Secretarial Authority, and the re-enlistment (RE) code will change to an appropriate RE-1 code for the service (USN or USMC).

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 wi…ll 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. ( Full Answer )
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 upgrade are slim (less than 1%) Even in the best of situations, if you did successfully appeal and get an upgrade, it would s…till 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. ( Full Answer )
Yes, you can reenlist if it was a Honorable Discharge. Now it is difficult depending on the reason why. I was discharged for a knee injury, so I need to get a doctor's note saying I'm medically cleared to run. Once that is taken cared of You will have to be in shape and meet military standards as yo…u were still in. BMI etc. I'm in the process myself. talk to a recruiter and he/she can tell you what exactly. Wish you the best of luck. ( Full Answer )
depends on how long you have been in. ask your chain of command or the education office
I received an honorable discharge from the military how can I obtain a military id card to use at the commissary?
Only retired, reserve or national guard soldiers have ID cards. SSG C. Hernandez US Army If you are not in the reserves, active, national guard or retired, you can not obtain an ID card.
Military pay ends on the date of discharge, for honorable, general under honorable, general under less than honorable, and dishonoralbe discharges. There are no residual benefits for less than honorable or dishonorable discharges.
An Under Other Than Honorable Conditions (OTH) characterization of service is the least favorable non-punitive characterization of service. It it recieved due to administrative separation from the military due to misconduct. An 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. An OTH will deprive the member of virtually all veteran's benefits based upon the current enlistment, and they can expect to encounter substantial predudice in civilian life in situations where the type of service or characterization of discharge recieved has a bearing.

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 Army is a very peculiar organization. It's actually not particularly difficult to enlist into the Army with a General Discharge, or even an other-than-honourable (however, a straightforward DD is usually a disqualifier) if the discharge occurred from any other branch of service. Reentry for pers…onnel who received a General or OTH from the Army, however, is extremely difficult. Your ability to enlist in the Army after an involuntary separation from another branch will be dependent on the reentry code on your DD-214. If you have an RE-1 or RE-2 reentry code, you're good to go. If you have an RE-3 code, you are disqualified for enlistment, but may be able to obtain a waiver to be able to enlist. If you have an RE-3C or RE-4 code, your chances are slim to none. ( Full Answer )
the time to honor the military is on fout=rth of July , memorial day and much more...
I honor the military because they are the men and women who stood up to answer the call to protect and serve their country when others were to scared or proud to do something. They are the ones doing the job that most would only like to talk about over a cup of coffee or tea with a group of friend…s about their own political beliefs. Remember soldiers in the Military are Americans too, just as a lot of people dislike police officers after you receive a ticket but when something happens and they show up you are happy for them to help you. ( Full Answer )
Your DD-214 will reflect "continuous honorable service fromyyyymmdd to yyyymmdd" reflecting the dates of your priorenlisment(s). This will show you honorably completed any priorenlistment. You may be eligible for certain VA benefits based onyour prior enlistment, but will be eligible for few, if any… for theenlistment for which you recieved an Under Other Than HonorableConditions (OTH) characterization. Go to the VA and ask for adetermination of eligibility for benefits. They will look closelyat your record, and determine what you are eligible for. ( Full Answer )
There are countless ways for civilians to honor the military. Flying the national flag daily honors them.

Berkowitz had signed up for a three year hitch. When his enlistment was up he decided he wanted to do something different and left the military with an honorable discharge.
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.
Can an Other than Honorable discharge from the military stop you from receiving your MGIB after doing 6yrs of active service?
Yes it can. Look at your DD214 to determine the level of benefits you may receive. If you require assistance with determining this, contact your local AMVETS representative.
A general discharges is given to a service member whose performance is satisfactory, but is marked by a considerable departure in duty performance and conduct expected of military members. There is no specific discharge called "general discharge with honorable conditions." There are six types of di…scharges: . Honorable . General . Other than Honorable . Bad Conduct . Dishonorable . Uncharachterized (or Entry Level Separation) -- neither good nor bad See more details about general discharge at the related links. ( Full Answer )
Yes. Pretty much every state requires the same process. Pistol safety course, paperwork, waiting, more waiting and more waiting. Back when I got mine it wasn't so bad but now everybody and his/her grandmother (nothing against grandmothers - I love grandmothers) is trying to get a license. My friend …has been waiting several months for his paperwork to come back. Don't delay. ( Full Answer )
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.
You're entitled to VA benefits and service related disability benefits (if applicable), but you won't continue receiving the benefits you received while you were on active duty.
If you have an RE-4 reentry code on your DD-214, your most likely answer is going to be no (the one exception being an RE-4C for failure to meet citizenship requirements for continued service, as the military has since done away with the eight year service limitation for foreign citizens). However, …it's not completely unheard of.. there are unique cases in which it was possible. Only an actual recruiter is going to be able to give you a definite answer. ( Full Answer )
You probably won't be able to reenlist into any branch of the military, and you may lose your VA benefits. Other than that, life goes on. It's not the same as a dishonourable discharge.
Yes you can, But you have to be open about it. Also, make sure that everything else in your background packet is in line. It also depends on what your discharge was for. I am speaking from experience and I am a Police Officer in the beautiful city of San Diego.
How do I change a general discharge or another than honorable discharge into an honorable discharge?
You may apply to have your discharge characterization upgraded with the Discharge Review Board (DRB) for your respective service by filling out a DD-293, and submitting a package for consideration. You will have to submit documentation proving there was an impropriety or inequity in your administrat…ive separation. Each case is very different, so it is hard to say what your chances are without knowing specifics. Very few cases are upgraded, but you might have a decent case.

If you join any branch of the US military and you stay in for a few years and then get an honorable discharge do you still need a College Degree to become a police officer?
It depends on the individual police department. Most do not require a degree for an entry level position, but many will require a degree for promotion beyond a given point. Check to see what the requirements are for the department you are interested in joining.
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 depend on the needs of the service, and has nothing to do with a waiting period. Also, the reason you were discharged, and yo…ur 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. ( Full Answer )
Complete your enlistment contract, or become ill or injured enough in the performance of your duty to obtain a medical discharge.
Unless you served an entire career and retired honorably there is no such thing as "severance" pay from the military. If you are referring to Veterans benefits for a service-connected disability, you can make application for it, but the burden of proof will be upon you to prove that that your Bipola…r Disorder was caused by your military service. HIGHLY doubtful! ( Full Answer )
Yes, so long as you're able to perform the duties required of you as a police officer. Added: You can expect to undergo a particularly rigorous medical examination covering the specific area(s) that caused your discharge.
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 enlistment, 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. ( Full Answer )
An Under Other Than Honorable (OTH) characterization of service 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 military. An OTH characterization tends to be very prejudicial in …civilian life in situations where the type of service rendered has a bearing, and might deprive the member of virtually all veteran's benefits based upon their enlistment. An OTH is recieved for misconduct of some sort, and is normally a consequence of administrative separation for legal reasons. It is the least favorable of the non-punitive characterizations.

Does the military ever reverse an honorable discharge to a dishonorable discharge if he or she commits capital murder after being discharged from the military?
No. If you commit a crime as a civilian after you've been separated from the military, it has no impact on your discharge. Not that it really matters - you get convicted for a capital crime, no discharge is going to better your life after prison, assuming you eventually get paroled.
College drops are possible, but this would be towards yourenlistment. You won't be able to do it in, say, the beginning ormiddle of it.

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.
Retirement nets you an honourable discharge, but not all honourably discharged personnel are retirees. If you enlist for three, four, etc. years, perform your duties like you're supposed to, and decide not to reenlist, you're discharged when your contract expires. You receive an honourable discharge… based on the character of your service. Someone who retires still receives such a discharge, but now we're talking about someone who has reenlisted multiple times, and will be collecting a pension. ( Full Answer )
On their DD-214, look at Block 26. It will say "Separation Code", and a three letter code will be typed in there. See the related link at the bottom for what those separation codes mean.

The soldier qualified as a Marksman with the Model 1903 Springfield Rifle, under the standards prescribed in 1941. The Springfield was the standard US rifle from 1903 until the M1 Garand was adopted just before WWII. The Springfield was a five shot, internal box magazine, bolt action rifle, a fine w…eapon, and the official US rifle of WWI (though may troops in WWI were armed with an "American Enfield"). The M1 was adopted after years of development just before WWII, but was not always available to troops in training, who learned to shoot with the older model. The term "thirty ought six" refers to the fact that the .30 caliber cartridge for the 1903 Springfield was redesigned in 1906. This was the cartridge fired by US troops in WWI, WWII and Korea, used in the 1903 Springfield, the M1, and the M14, and also in the .30 caliber machine guns. ( Full Answer )
