Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Thank you for the information and your question. However, I need to know what the separation code was (3 letters) and what the narrative said in reason for discharge. Also, what Service were you separated from?
Thank you for that information, although I don't see where you answered the part about your narrative reason on your discharge about the reason for the discharge. That said, the JFY indicates that you were separated for a psychological disorder of some sort. In addition the 2C is a a reenlistment code that is a permanent bar to reenlistment. In other words, you cannot reenlist in the future with this RE code. In addition, with the JFY code, you would not be able to reenlist, even with a different RE code unless the military doctors at your accessions said you never had, and don't currently have, the psychological issue that they diagnosed you with before this separation.
If you can find a doctor that says you never had the medical issue you were separated for, then you might consider filing a petition with the AF Discharge Review Board for a change in your RE code and separation code. But, it is difficult to be successful with that petition unless there was a clear error on the part of the AF.
