[QUOTE=Jeffrox;40538]RE4, (not recommended for reenlistment), does NOT equal BCD.[/QUOTE]
Oh, yeah, that’s right. I forgot about Clinton’s kinder, gentler Navy. Now there is a gray area.
It used to be just Honorable / Dishonorable.
Now there is the grey area of the General Discharge.
But I don’t see someone getting an RE4 and and honorable at the same time. Especially if they don’t even let you serve out your full enlistment.
Yes, yes it’s possible. After retirement say for instance. But he admits having screwed up and stops short of admitting to getting the boot.
Society got tired of the military turning guys loose with Dishonorable discharges to walk the rest of their lives in shame and be on the same level as an ex-convict so they created the grey area for guys that screw up but no one really got hurt or they don’t deserve Brig time for the screw up.
How does one with so little seafaring experience know so much? 83 threads? Really?
For someone with a DUI and a shady discharge from Never Again Volunteer Yourself that does not even have an MMC, he sure has a lot to say about this industry and seamanship in general.
Just me thinkin out loud. Sorry.
I say treatment, get life in order, then work your way up the ladder like the rest of us.
We got enough drunks and drug heads out here as it is.
