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.

(The system will automatically generate a phone call request to you which is NOT from me. I will not accept a phone call request and will work through the chat system.)

The main military benefit that is lost is the GI Bill eligibility. For burial rights, yes a General will apply.

There are some other benefits, such as farm loans, defense housing purchases, homestead benefits, civil service preference or credit towards civil retirement that would not be available.

For the most part though, the General discharge grants the same benefits.

Here is a fairly comprehensive list:
