  • Have no clue

    Hello! I received my husbands DD214 from the Army, said Honorable Discharge, and a NGB Form 22 from the National Guard... Can someone please tell me what uncharacterized means on a discharge form? Also has RE3. Are these items bad?

    Re: Have no clue

    Uncharacteristized is a Entry Level Separation. Basically it's not good or bad. RE stands for Re-entry Code. There are RE1, RE2, RE3, and RE4....and the closer you get to RE4 the less likely you are to ever get back into the Army.

    Nothing bad just he probably will never get back into the military. If he does try it will require a waiver.

      Would he still be able to purchase and use a firearm? Or does this take away his rights?

        Yes, he can purchase a firearm. He has not lost any rights because technically he is not a veteran...and doesn't ever have to tell anyone he was in the military. As long as it does not say dishonorable. Uncharacterized means he was not in the Army long enough to prove his service honorable or dishonorable, or other than honorable.

        How long was he in the Guard?

        There are three letters called SPD Code what does it say in that block?

            Since 2007...mandifine...since 2007. How long was he in the guard for? And if you see the SPD codes you can look those up on about.com and see why he was discharged.

              It may not be relevant to her questions but just for GP, it doesn't work that way. A dishonorable discharge will loose you a right to posses a firearm, however there is also a bad conduct discharge. Both of those discharges must be determined at a courts martial, in other words they come with a criminal conviction. One must also look at what you were convicted of as that charge alone (even in theory of being separated with honorable) can cause you to lose gun rights.

              The admin separation characterizations are uncharacterized, honorable, general, and other than honorable. These can be issued administratvely by a commander and not as a result of a criminal conviction.

                    At the bottom it says uncharacterized and has a RE3... We know why he was discharged but cant figure out the uncharacterized part, and the Army discharge form sayd Honorable. Also He was never convicted or anything like that.

                      Why did he just serve 2 years and 15 days? He was involuntary separated for what reason?

                        Was there transfer orders to The IRR Army Reerve? or just discharged and done?Look at Ng-22 form and check box 9 to see if tranfered to AR PERSCOM.

                            Ok was the NG-22 form after the DD 214? Also if so what is the discharge on NG-22 box 23 authority and reason Box 24 character of Service?If the NG-22 form is after the DD-214 that is what employers go by so the Uncharacterized on the DD-214 would be from Boot Camp with not enough time in because less then 181 days on Active Duty.

                              Ah the good old popping hot.........I know how that goes.

                              My only question now is why have you come here to look for answers, when he should have told you what happen? Is everything okay?
