    Depends on why he got his general discharge. What did he do? More than likely it's not going to look good for him and with military branches meeting their quotas and even surpassing him he will likely have trouble as prior service. And honestly if he couldn't handle the Marine Corps and getting a very easy to achieve honorable discharge, why do you think he'll want to join the Army? Honestly

    It's Corps by the way not core.

    general discharge = loser.

    Come on, it is not that hard to get an honorable discharge. For someone not to get one they more in likely screwed up. The service just wants to get rid of them but does not want to go to the time and effort to court martial them so they can give the guy a dishonorable discharge. So they give him a general discharge, often under honorable conditions and the guy is dumb enough to take it.

    Then later he has second thoughts and starts talking about getting it upgraded. (1 out of 10,000 odds of that happening) or they talk about going back into the service. Why would one service take the problem child of another service?

    Lastly, recruitment is going great right now. Why would any service take a loser when there is a pool of untainted recruits out there? New recruits right out of high school, people who served before who got an honorable discharge, etc.

    Tell your husband he needs to clean up his act, otherwise when he is out, he is out.

    almost impossible. one, GUHs come with RE3 or 4 codes and you absolutely can never get back in with a 4, 3's require a waiver, some characterizations no waivers are authorized and right now, NONE are being granted even if they are authorized,.
