Honorable Discharge? That'd make me happy.

Oh, believe me, unless you want a lifelong military career, it's VERY good news.

(meesa ex-wingnut)

EDIT: Oh, yeah, details. "Honorable discharge" basically means you're leaving the military service voluntarily--not signing up for additional service--for your own reasons.

Here's all the different types. (Big long thing.)

Hooah!

So glad to hear it, Elliott!

Now if the division would quit sitting on my DH's papers and just let him out, I'll be really happy. Gotta love it when you're out in all but name, but they're keeping you on the books until the end of the fiscal year to keep their numbers up. grrrrrrrrr
