Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of law practice and nearly 20 years of experience in the legal field. I’m happy to be of assistance.
I will do my best to decipher it for you, though we are dealing with very old publications.
First, the AFM 39-10 is referring to the manual that granted commanders the ability to separate people before their term of service ended.
Para. 3-8q is just the notation from that regulation, and refers to separation based onnot meeting the minimum requirements for continued service. Sometimes it's medical...sometimes just not wanting to be in or stay. Mostly, it was used as an excuse to let someone go early.
The SDN-715 is referencing the idea of an "Early release for the convenience of the government." It is meant to indicate that it is not based on misconduct or anything dishonorable.
The rest is just the date when the message of approval was received from headquarters allowing the separation.
