Does field grade article 15 automatically give me a general discharge? I am ETSing soon and have been worrying about what type of discharge I will get because my plan is to use my G.I. Bill and go back to school as soon as I get out. It’s my first article 15 and I was charged for dereliction of duty, lying to senior officer and falsifying official documents. Thank you!

Another Service Member concerned about punishment or type of discharge AFTER they have done something wrong, that in no way fits in with any of the Army Values. If only they would think of this stuff BEFORE you commit your acts, things would be so much better for everyone involved. IMO, you get whatever is coming your way. Talk to legal they may have some answers for you.
best bet is to talk to someone in legal. Since you are being allowed to ETS instead of being chaptered over your AR-15, I would not think that you would automatically get a general discharge. Though, I have to admit, based on your offenses I am slightly surprised that all you got was a FG article 15. I've seen people get court martialed for less. Consider yourself lucky and hope for the best on your discharge.
