And Reason for Separation Codes

Separation Codes (Numeric)

Separation Codes (Alphabetic)

RE Codes (Army)

RE Codes (Air Force)

RE Codes (Navy/Marines/Coast Guard)

Note: A "Separation Code" is a numerical or alphabetic code which defines the reason a discharge was granted. While the primary factor on whethre or not one can reenlist lies with the RE Code, the services also use the Separation Codes to determine whether or not one is eligible. An individual's Separation Code and RE Code can normally be found on the DD Form 214, Record of Discharge.
