Hey there everyone,

I joined the reserves back in 2011ish and went thru basic and ait with no issues. When I got back home I wasn't able to find a job and didn't have a car. I'm not using that as an excuse just stating it because I'm trying to be up front about the story. I realize it was my responsibility and I failed. I got discharged due to not being able to attend drill at my station which was close to 2 hours away and couldn't get transferred to a closer unit because they didn't have spots for my mos.

I recently got my DD214 in the mail that shows a general under honorable conditions discharge but the RE-code is NA. I can't find much information about this online. I found one thread mentioning officers but I wasn't one. I've been looking into rejoining now as I loved the structure of the military and have matured and come a long way over the last 7 years. Does anyone know what the N/A code means?

I have talked to a recruiter who tried to pull a red report but I believe they said it was showing the same thing. They sent in through email to get my 214 (this was before mine came in the mail after requesting it). I do plan to contact them tomorrow I was just hoping someone here could give me some insight if possible

Only the recruiters can work this out with you. Now, I’ve been out of the recruiting loop for quite some time but not having a RE code is waaaaayyyyyy much better than having one!!!!!!

PFC (Join to see) - How did your re-enlistment work out? I have been considering re-joining but I also have ZZ on my REDD report and no DD-214 or RE code, just separation orders from the Reserves (Honorable Discharge).

It's just a little bit of confusion. A DD214 is only for active service. Your 214 is for your basic and AIT portion. It has an NA because you weren't discharged, you were still in the Reserves.
