ReEnlistment Codes

**NOTE: Not all of these codes are still used. If you come across a code that is not on this list, please contact us.

Marine Corps / Navy Reenlistment codes
These codes are contained on military discharge documents and determine whether or not one may reenlist or enlist in a military service at a later time. In general, those who receive a Navy/Marine/Coast Guard RE Code of 1 may reenlist in their previous service or another service with no problem. Individuals with a Navy/Marine/Coast Guard RE Code of "2" may usually reenlist in their service or another service with various restrictions, or if the circumstances which resulted in the code no longer apply. Individuals with a Navy/Marine/Coast Guard RE Code of "3" can normally reenlist in their service or another Service, but will probably require a waiver to be processed. Individuals with a Navy/Marine/Coast Guard RE Code of "4" are normally not eligible to reenlist in their service, nor join another service.
