So you got an Honorable Discharge from the Military. So what? You need to double check it to see if you’ve been fucked over.
Are you a veteran? Been having a hard time finding good employment? Have you been told you have to wait a year to see a specialist at the VA hospital? There is a secret code on your DD Form 214 that everyone but you know about. Employers like Boeing, Honeywell, General Dynamics and many more have been provided the codes that they use to determine if you get hired.
Watch this video and I’ll have more afterwards.
By now you’re saying, “That’s not me. My DD214 doesn’t have that code.”
Look again Sports Fan. The SPN code discussed on the videos apply to Veitnam Era discharges. They were replaced by newer codes.
Those are my codes. MCB is “Early separation- Special Separation Program” 3S is “Special Separation Program”. It means I took the Special Separation Bonus when I elected to separate in 1992. The codes also bar me from reenlistment or federal employment with the caveat that if I find a federal job or reenlist (in say, the National Guard) I would not accrue pay until I paid back the $50,000 Bonus. That’s including the tax taken out.
