What Is a General Discharge from the Military?


A general military discharge is when a certain member of the armed forces is released from their obligation to serve. Some of the things that may lead to military discharge include personality disorder, pregnancy and reaching maximum age limit among others. The discharge is not the same as retirement and one is subject to recall for active duty.
