The fact sheets and military regulations for each branch (in the Discharges/AWOL/UA Table below) and accompanying commentary may provide the information you are seeking about many discharges. Military regulations often allow for a great deal of command discretion. Consequently outcomes can vary from person to person. To discuss the likelihood of different outcomes call a counselor at 1-877-447-4487. If you are experiencing harrassment, discrimination, or abuse, you can learn about your rights and the options available to you by exploring the section Rights, Grievances, and Complaints. Many answers can also be found in the Frequently Asked Questions. For more information specific to your particular situation, please call a counselor at 1-877-447-4487. Our counselors are happy to discuss any of this information with you and discuss options you can explore to address the specific situation you are in.
SPECIAL NOTE: As of Sept 2016, we have updated links to Army Regulations to comply with the Army's new electronic publication system. However, due to temporary (we hope) glitches in their web site, our links may lead to error messages. If you would like assistance accessing regulations and our links aren't working, please call the Hotline at 1-877-447-4487.
