Careers: Military--Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines, Coast Guard/Twice Non-select


Dear Sir

Concerning my DD 214:
line 23 Discharge
Line 24: Honorable
Line 26: JGB
Line 27. N/A
Line 28 Non-selection, Permanent promotion

Please let me know if I can reenter as an officer or do I have reenter only as an enlisted. Also what is the typical rank the Army brings an officer. I am prior enlisted in the U.S Army Reserves and was honorably discharged after completing my entire reserve obligation.

1.  JGB means exactly JGB - Failure to select for promotion. not retirement eligible, USN - Officers

2.  The Army typically brings in officers at the rank of Captain (o-3).

You have a chance because your discharge was honorable.  Slim, but worth a shot.  See  a recruiter to see if he can help you.
Thanks for your service.
Colonel H
