    Does anyone know what the reentry codes stand for?

    Say, what it means if you have a 1? or a 3? etc..


    Thank you.

    having a 1 or 1a means you are good to go for reenlistment, 2 or 3 means you have obstacles to overcome, and I believe that a 4 means not a chance. You can look at the forums at military.com for more precise answers.

    Pretty much anything other than a 1 means you did not get out at the end of an completed term of enlistment with an honorable.

    MGomez,

    ...well,..just some friendly words of advise:)

    If you alter the document (ie change the code) and present it to someone, in pursuit of a job, veteran's benefits, etc..your taking a "significant" risk of prosecution (ie it's against the law).

    Recommend that you don't do that.

    ..if your interested in re-enlisting, just take your 214 to a recruiting station and ask if your qualified to re-enlist?

    Jay

    Wow. Well, I had no intention of the sort (forging a government document).

    You'd have to be, excuse my bluntness here, pretty G-D stupid to think you'd get away with that.

    Thank you all for your input, though when I said possibilities I thoroughly only meant possibilities of going back into the service. Thread dismissed now.

    From what I can tell, the Navy list is about three times longer than the Marine Corps one.

    I recieved an RE-1B, it is not on the Navy list, I can enter any of the other branches but I am not eligible to re-enlist in the Marine Corps due to having reached service limitaions. The only thing is if I do join another branch I have to pay back that fat chunk of change they gave me. No thanks.

    Is it that hard to get promoted in the Marine Corps? I thought if you had a pulse, it's an automatic promotion.. LOL j/k. Seriously, I don't think you can transfer to the Navy if you have reached your high year tenure (HYT) of your paygrade.

    its good forever, its basically just a classifier of your prior service. Reenlisting still falls under age and medical conditions
