SEPARATIONS
  • There are two types of separations
  • Administrative Separations
  • It is a purely administrative proceeding. 
  • The only question that should remain is what the
    characterization of your service will be. 
  • In short an AdSep is the way the Marine Corps
    fires people. 
  • Punitive Discharges
  • Authorized punishments of court-martials and can
    only be awarded for violations of the UCMJ.
  • There are two types of punitive discharges for
    enlisted.

TYPES OF DISCHARGE
  • The five types of discharge are as follows
  • Honorable
  • General (under honorable conditions)
  • Other than honorable
  • Bad conduct
  • Dishonorable
  • Separation vs. Discharge
  • A separation is why the service member is being
    discharged, either punitive or AdSep.
  • Whereas, a discharge is the type of
    characterization the service member will receive
    in his DD214.

Administrative
Punitive

HONORABLE
  • Honorable Discharge
  • The quality of the members service generally has
    met the standards of acceptable conduct and
    performance .
  • Service members who complete their tour of duty,
    normally receive honorable discharges.
  • For example A United States Marine must have
    pros/cons mark of 3.0/4.0 or higher to receive an
    honorable discharge.
  • In the case of an honorable discharge, the
    service member will be awarded a Honorable
    Discharge Certificate (DD Form 256) and notations
    on the DD 214.

GENERAL
  • General (under honorable conditions)
  • Fiction Many think because a general discharge
    is given under honorable conditions, it is as
    good as the honorable itself.
  • Fact A general discharge indicates satisfactory
    service but not to the established standards.
  • When negative aspects outweighing positive
    aspects on record.
  • For example A member who receives too many Page
    11s outweighing good conduct will be discharged
    under a General.
  • Member will not normally be allowed to reenlist
    or enter a different military service.
  • A general discharge may preclude participation in
    benefits that require an honorable discharge,
    e.g. G.I. Bill and some VA benefits.

(OTH)
  • Other Than Honorable
  • An OTH is the most severe form of administrative
    discharge.
  • This type of discharge is given when the members
    actions bring discredit upon the service.
  • For example Refusal, hazing, violence and act to
    cause harm, willful or persistent misconduct,
    homosexual acts and adultery.
  • Recipients of OTH are barred from reenlisting
    into any component of the armed forces, reserves
    and guard.
  • In addition almost all VA benefits are not
    available to individual

THE NEGATIVES
11
(BCD)
  • Bad Conduct (BCD)
  • Unlike an administrative discharge, a Bad Conduct
    Discharge is a punitive discharge.
  • Often preceded by a period of confinement in a
    military prison.
  • This type of discharge is referred as the Big
    Chicken Dinner.
  • Since this type of discharge is not executed
    until completion of confinement.
  • For example some sort of criminal conviction
    that is equal to a misdemeanor in the civilian
    sector, car theft.
  • All member benefits are forfeited, and finding a
    job in civilian life will be hard.

12
Dishonorable
  • Dishonorable Discharge (DD) DUCK DINNER
  • This type of discharge is handed down for what
    the military considers the most reprehensive
    conduct.
  • For example Murder, sexual assault and
    pedophilia.
  • A conviction can be anywhere from 10-20 years in
    prison and is equal to a felony conviction.
  • Firearms are prohibited to own and finding a job
    is near impossible.
  • At this point all members benefits are lost,
    regardless of any honorable service in the past.
  • This type of discharge is considered as shameful
    in the military.
