Reservist Unsatisfactory Participation

Unexcused absence from an annual training or from nine or more training units in a one year period often results in a discharge from the reserve component for failing to meet the training requirements. Often the service of someone so discharged will be characterized as general under honorable conditions or under other than honorable conditions. GI Rights Hotline counselors are available to discuss this discharge and issues regarding missed drills. See special note for information on possible additional penalties for members of the National Guard.
