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. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
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 .

That would depend on how much the annuity pays out. The regulators calculate your income sources and will apportion a payout of U.I. if your income falls within the allowable amount.
My DD Form 214 was discharged under general how can I get it changed to Honorable?
Only if you don't tell them about your retirement. I retired Jan 2010 and immediately went to work FT. After 7 months, I was laid off without notice. I applied for unemployment and stated honestly that I receive a military retirement. I am a man of integrity and had no desire to falsify information …that could come back to haunt me or even be charged with a crime since it is illegal to falsify information when applying for unemployment. I was told that I did not qualify for unemployment benefits becaus I receive a military retirement. In short, in the state of Georgia, retired veterans will never be eligible for unemployment benefits because our retirement is more than the benefit. What is being lost in all this is that the state requires every employer to pay into the unemployment system for their workers. This means that the state of Georgia gets to keep the money paid by my employer because I can never qualify for unemployment benefits. This is outrageous! I guess my 24 years of service wasn't enough, they now want my unemployment benefits as well. Just their way of saying "Thanks for your service". Good Soldier (MORE)
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. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
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.
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. (MORE)

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.
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'd really have to check with the Veterans Administration to be sure, however, unless the regulation has changed - no. I believe one year after separation you can apply to upgrade that "Other Than Honorable" to an "Honorable" discharge and then be eligible for benefits. A lot hinges on your civili…an record since discharge. Again, I'm going from memory and everyone knows that's not reliable, so to be sure call your local VA representative and ask them. They can cite you chapter and verse and will even assist you in the application process when the time requirement is up. If anyone else out there can help this guy or provide more accurate information PLEASE do. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
I believe you would be entitled to most benefits. Best to ask the V.A. 1-800-827-1000
Can you join the police department with a general discharge from the military under homosexual conduct before you attended basic training and if there was no legal issues with it from the military?
It depends on state and local law, and also the policy of thepolice department in question; however, you may also be able to contest your discharge, since homosexuality is no longer grounds for a discharge.
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.
Georgia's unemployment compensation ranges from $44 to $330 per week, depending on the work history/wages of claimant. unemplyment varies depending upon your income over the previous 12 months before filing for unemployment
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.
You can ask to see their DD-214, although a false document may be presented. As military service records are a matter of public record, you have the option to send a Freedom of Information Act Request to the Department of Veterans Affairs, although this may take a couple months. For further informat…ion on how to go about with this process, you can contact the webmasters of the POW Network website (see related link at the bottom), who are very well versed in this process, as they do it all the time to out frauds and impostors. (MORE)
It's possible, yes. The likelihood really depends on the circumstances surrounding your discharge, your RE code on your DD-214, and so forth. You would need to contact an Army recruiter in your area to get specifics as pertaining to your case.
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.

This is maintained by officers who have served on the Navy Discharge Review Board (NDRB) and can assist applicants with preparing their cases. (MORE)
Depending on the condition of the discharge, yes, in most states. Check with the state's employment security office for details.
No you can't.... BUT six months to a year later you can appeal your case with the VA for an honorable, and then you can
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. (MORE)
It may depend on the nature of the disability. Unemployment requires the ability, among other things, to work and by definition, a disabled person might not be able to perform that function.
Complete your enlistment contract, or become ill or injured enough in the performance of your duty to obtain a medical 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. (MORE)
For any discharge of Honorable or General Under Honorable Conditions the answer is Yes. And in SOME CASES Less Than or Other Than Honorable you can as well.
Yes, I did in 1985. Went from General Under Honorable Conditions to Honorable. Board was in Dallas Texas and once they found I was in college with all my VA benefits intack It was Granted. Got a new DD214 and a county job......
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. The maximum time before your ETS date which you canbe separated is 90 days, if you're doing your initial enlistment,it must be a three year enlistment, and you're i…neligible if you'rea member of a reserve component on active duty status, or a formerROTC cadet compelled to active duty due to a breach of contract. The Army regs on this would be AR 635-200... I don't know what theyare for other service branches, or if the other service brancheseven offer this. The form you're looking for is the DA Form 4187.

I presume that you mean that you wish to collect unemployment because you were involuntarily separated from the military. Discharge from the military, for any reason, does not qualify one for unemployment benefits in California (and, I'm pretty sure, nowhere else, either). Unemployment is a civil…ian system. Now, you may qualify for assistance from programs under the various "Welfare" laws if you are unable to find a new job quickly. Disability claims must be filed through the Military, however. If the question involves the impact that a OTH or BCD might have on future eligibility for unemployment in the civilian world (i.e. you took a civilian job, then were laid off): it is irrelevant. OTH/BCD and similar have no legal bearing in the civilian world - they will follow you around when applying for various military benefits and things, but they do not become part of your civilian legal record. That is, it's not like they're treated as a felony or other crime. They can't be used against you in the civilian legal or ordinary government benefits areas. (MORE)
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.
Yes, after 6 months after being discharged you can apply for a Go f!@# your self hearing witht the VA board..
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.
How long do you have to wait until you can join the reserves or national guard after receiving a general under honorable discharge?
It's actually your RE Code which will determine if you even can or not. If you have an RE-2 or RE-3, it may be possible to be waivered in. If you have an RE-4, probably not.
Definition of a "veteran" Pursuant to M.G.L. c. 32, Â§1, and c. 4, Â§ 7, cl.43, you qualify as a veteran if you meet ONE of the following three requirements : 1) You have at least 180 days of regular active duty service and you were honorably discharged or released. 2) You have at least … 90 days of active duty service, at least one day of which was during wartime per the chart below, and you were honorably discharged or released. .

Yes, but not for members with Bad Conduct/Dishonorable. Members with and OTH (Other Than Honorable Discharges) are still eligible and can receive a burial flag. There are no laws that prevent someone from purchasing and draping a casket with a flag however one will not be provided military honors… by the guard to fold and present it to the next of kin if you have a dishonorable discharge. You must have at least an Honorable or OTH discharge. (MORE)
Well the highest is General grade 4 which as only been obtained by General Ben Jones. Extra info: The lowest is of course young gay popstar rank which is currently only owned by Justin bieber.
You may apply to have your characterization of service changed to Honorable by filling out a DD-293 and submitting the application to the Discharge Review Board (DRB) for your service. Applicants are entitled to two reviews within 15 years of their discharge date. One is a document review where the …DRB examines your records along with any supporting documentation you provide to support your case. The second is a personal appearance hearing before the DRB in Washington DC in which you can make your case in person. Upgrades are never automatic, and are actually fairly rare. Applications are reviewed based on the propriety (legality) and equity (fairness) of the discharge received. You must submit clear, decisive issues for the board to consider, and you must support any claims with documentation. Having an expert assist you with the process is highly recommended in order to maximize your chances of success. There are a few organizations who provide solid, free support to veterans. The American Legion does a good job for free. There is also a Facebook page which which is very helpful. (MORE)
