from the Navy. If you separate from the Navy at your EAOS but before completing 8 years of service, you will not receive a discharge but will be “separated” from active  naval  service.  The  Navy  gives  five  types  of discharge.  Each  type  of  discharge  has  a  specific meaning and affects you in a way different from any of the others. The type of discharge you receive depends on the reason for your discharge. REASONS FOR DISCHARGE You may receive a discharge for many reasons. Under almost all conditions, whenever and however you leave the Navy, you will receive a discharge. Some of the reasons for receiving a discharge are as follows: Expiration of enlistment Disability, dependency, or hardship Fulfillment of service obligation Convenience of the government Unsuitability If discharged for any of the above reasons, you will receive an honorable or a general discharge. TYPES OF DISCHARGE The five types of discharge are as follows: 1.  Honorable 2.  General (under honorable conditions) 3.  Other than honorable 4.  Bad conduct 5.  Dishonorable Some personnel think because a general discharge is given under honorable conditions, it is as good as the honorable discharge itself. However, that assumption is not  true.  A  general  discharge  indicates  satisfactory service but not to the established standard of the Navy. Honorable Discharge To receive an honorable discharge, you must have received a rating from good to excellent for your service to the Navy. Even though you only qualify for a general discharge,  you  may  receive  an  honorable  discharge under two circumstances. 1.  When you are being separated because of a disability incurred in the line of duty 2.  When you receive any awards for gallantry in action, heroism, or other meritorious service General Discharge You receive a general discharge when you separate from the service, under honorable conditions, without a sufficiently meritorious military record to deserve an honorable discharge. Other Than Honorable Discharge You receive an other than honorable discharge for misconduct or security reasons. Bad Conduct Discharge You receive a bad conduct discharge (BCD) when you separate from the service under conditions other than honorable. You receive a bad conduct discharge only by an approved sentence of a general or a special court-martial. Dishonorable Discharge You receive a dishonorable discharge (DD) when you  separate  from  the  service  under  dishonorable conditions. You may receive a dishonorable discharge only by a general court-martial and as appropriate for serious offenses calling for dishonorable separation as part of the punishment. EFFECTS OF THE TYPE OF DISCHARGE Some  people  will  try  to  convince  you  (or themselves) that the type of discharge they receive will make no difference in their civilian lives. Others will tell you  that  a  discharge  under  less  than  honorable conditions can be upgraded if they show themselves to have been good citizens for a time. How wrong they are! Although some discharges have been upgraded by the Board for Correction of Naval Records, the percentage 16-31 Student Notes:
