Discharge and Separation Defense
Involuntary Separations are usually processed with the intent to have the service member separated with a less than honorable discharge, such as a general discharge or an other than honorable (OTH). Upon separation, your DD 214 becomes your resume to future employers. A discharge that is less than honorable will impact your ability to become gainfully employed. It can also impact your eligibility for certain veterans’ benefits. It requires dedication and hard work to become a member of the world’s most elite military. Your hard work and dedication should be reflected on your DD 214.
