  • Uncharacterized discharge

    I received an uncharacterized discharge because i was injured during BCT and was sent home due to being split op. Well i was unable to re ship due to my medical record being lost and they wouldnt send me without it and couldnt find it. Told i would receive an uncharacterized discharge since they basically had no records on me now.

    Ok now after the history lesson, will this effect me if i want to re enlist? The discharge is dated april 2006.

    Also can i get credit for prior service? I enlisted in oct 2002 and made it to the rank of PFC E-3 and would like to get this rank back.

    Any help on the matter would be great.

    You most likley will be able to come back in. You will be known as a GNPS. Glossery Non Prior Service, because you didn't complete BCT. That measn NO bonus, all you will get is Tuiton Benifits. Contact a local recruiter.

      I'm in the same boat. I'm glossary non-prior due to not graduating Coast Guard basic. You're not even eligible for the Quick-Ship or Off-Peak bonuses either.
