Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of law practice and over 20 years of experience in the legal field. I’m happy to be of assistance.
You've have to obtain a waiver to rejoin, but those aren't being granted right now. There are so many people trying to join the service and there are fewer positions available, so waivers aren't being granted.
That means that the only other way for you to be able to join is to have your RE code changed through the DD Form 149 process, which is a method of getting military records corrected or changed. You have to prove that the discharge status you received was either an error or an injustice to be able to change it.
