I served in the Army Reserves in the 90's, completing my service obligation in 2000 with an honorable discharge. I have been toying with the idea of coming back as a medical officer (yes- I'm older but they need clinicians!) and my REDD report came back with re-enlistment code of zz and a separation code (SPD) of zzz. No one seems to know what this is, as it does not represent any codes at all and I cannot commission without a valid code. My term of previous service was unremarkable, and I got out honorably when my time was up, so I can't imagine it is any kind of red flag. The recruiters, MEPS liasons, etc., are confused, and unless this gets resolved my re-joining is dead in the water. Anyone seen this before?
Have you got a copy of your DD-214....What does it say?
