Space Force Discharge Rebuttal Guide

Have you received a Space Force Administrative Discharge? Military Justice Guides is here to help. Purchase our Space Force Discharge Response Template to write and submit a persuasive response.

What You Need to Know

According to Instruction 36-3208, Guardians may be administratively discharged for a failure to meet Space Force standards. Guardians are most often discharged for misconduct (Section 5H of 36-3208) or failure in the fitness program (Section 5K). There are different types of misconduct: minor disciplinary infractions (paragraph 5.49), pattern of misconduct (paragraph 5.50), civilian conviction (paragraph 5.51), commission of a serious offense (paragraph 5.52), drug abuse (paragraph 5.54), and sexual assault (paragraph 5.55).

When Guardians are discharged, they receive one of three types of service characterization: Honorable, General (Under Honorable Conditions), or Under Other Than Honorable Conditions (“UOTHC”). The characterization of service often determines what commander can approve your discharge.

If you have been in the military for more than six years, or your command recommends a UOTHC characterization, you are entitled to a Board Hearing before discharge. In those circumstances, you should consult with an attorney.

If you are not entitled to a Board, you should still submit a rebuttal to the discharge. A strong rebuttal may allow you to stay in the Space Force or could help you get a discharge upgrade in the future.

What You Can Do

You can learn more about the Space Force Discharge process and how to respond in our recent blog posts:

  • The Types and Impacts of a Space Force Discharge

If you are notified of administrative discharge, you are entitled to three duty days to submit a written response. Your written response becomes a part of the official record, so it is important that you submit a professional, respectful, and persuasive response.
