I finish my first assignment to the marine corps body composition program in three days, yet I am still not within standards. My Company Gunny is saying that he will be recommending administrative seperation. My question is what kind of discharge will I be most likely be looking at if I have three years of good conduct with no NJP's and one successful push in OIF?
State/Country relating to question: California
They can technically give you an honorable if it appears that you have made an effort but simply can not meet the standard. If they feel that you could have met the standard, but simply have not, you can receive a general Discharge, under honorable conditions.A general discharge can be granted without the need for a board if you have less than 6 years in service.
so is my service record taken into consideration when these types of things are going on? And is general under honorable most likely to be the discharge more so than an OTH?
Yes, your previous service record is taken into consideration.As for an other than honorable, it is not possible to receive that level of discharge for a performance type discharge. You'd have to be charged with misconduct of a criminal nature to warrant that level of discharge and you'd automatically be entitled to a board, even with less than 6 years of service.
This last question then I will hit accept. How long is the estimated time for the adsep to be completed once the process begins?
That depends on the motivation of the commander/JAG.I could do them in less than a month if we really wanted to get it out the door (in fact, two weeks). Sometimes they aren't that motivated though, so two to three months is not uncommon.
