  • Air Force RE-4J?

    I separated from the Air Force In 2010 with a Honorable Discharge, separation code KBK, and a RE-4J. Am I eligible and likely to get a waiver? The 4J was issued because I failed my last PT test.

    I do not know if RE-4s are being waived. You will need to see a recruiter about that.

      I know that in general RE-4s are not being waived, I was more wondering if different branches look at the codes differently. From what I've seen no other branch but the Air Force gives out a RE-4 for failing a PT test. I could easily pass one now.

        Army does push ups and sit-ups for 2 minutes and a longer run. I think you failed a couple before being kicked out.

          I was not kicked out, I served my complete 6 year enlistent. I received the normal KBK separation code and my narrative say "Completion of required active service". I failed my last PT test a week before I went on terminal leave (I had over 100 days saved up). The failure put me in the weight control program which I did not complete because I was seperated. RE-4J- Entered in Phase I AF Weight Prog; or airman ineligible for period of Phase II

            I found this online.

            4-24. Prior Service applicantsIf an applicant received a RE-4 from the U.S. Army or a RE-4 or equivalent from another service, applicant is ineligible to enter the ARNG (waivers are not authorized). If an applicant received an RE-4 or its equivalent from another service that would have been ruled an RE-3 by the U.S. Army, a suitability review may be submitted to allow the RE code to be treated as an RE-3. Questionable cases may be forwarded to HQDA (DAPE-MPA) for consideration.*

            3-23. Determination of enlistment/assignment eligibilityRE-3 with the following separation codes are fully eligible to enlist: KBK, KCC, KCF, KDM, LBK, MBK, MCC, MCF, and MDM.

            I just don't know if my code would be ruled a RE-3 or if this information I have found is still correct

              What is the Narrative Reason for Separation?

              The 4J requires a waiver. Air Force RE Codes are a bit different, a 4 isn't as bad as a 2 (not eligible for waiver).

              The curious thing is the SPD Code (KBK) which is - Normal expiration of Service which wouldn't require a waiver at all.

              My initial guess is that you won't even require a waiver as the SPD trumps the RE code.

                The narrative reason for separation was "Completion of required active service".

                I have been trying to find answers myself but I get conflicting answers. Air Force reentry codes do not seem to be as clear cut as other branches.

                  The Army doesn't want people who can't pass an Air Force PT test.
