Reenlistment Eligibility (RE) Codes Explained

Reenlistment Eligibility (RE) codes are placed on military discharge documents and determine whether or not one may reenlist or enlist in a military service at a later time. A Separation Code is also considered and is a numerical or alphabetic code which defines the reason a discharge was granted.
