  • Separation code; JFY "Adjustment disorder" what are my chances?

    I was discharged from the military after 8 months of service. I received an honorable discharge but was given an adjustment disorder separation code. Reason for that was because I would get incredibly sea sick, my command was downsizing and I was going through kind of a hard time with some family issues. I was asked if I wanted to stay in the military, I said no, I was subsequently discharged. I know that separation code is probably a red flag, but if I earn my paramedic cert, a bachelors, and get some volunteer experience with a fire house, do I have a chance to still becoming a firefighter? Should I not mention my military experience at all? (I live in california)

        I would say as long as you can explain,,,, If asked,,, what happened and what was going on,

        Plus, show you have a positive attitude now, and goals, you should be good to go.


        I have not seen anyone with that code apply before, so a little lost on and prior history of people.


        Does your 214 say you can reenlist??

          Thanks for responding! It says I can reenlist with a waiver.

            The amount of checking that gets done varies by department. You might be fine just not mentioning it but I would recommend you scrutinize every piece of documentation you get to make sure that they have not asked you for a full and complete employment history. There are a lot of things you can explain with the truth, but if they think you tried to squeak one by them, the bigger cities that are just looking for a reason to shed applicants are probably more likely to clip you rather than ask for an explanation.

              """ Thanks for responding! It says I can reenlist with a waiver.""

              As a background person, I look for that.

              With that and a good explanation, plus positive progression since, I would not write much, except what you have said..


              We ask for a 214, because, 1. past work history, and 2. it has a lot of info on it.

              Plus most applications ask why did you leave your last job!!!

                You can use different resources to record your achievements. For example, writing a resume or homework, you can write in a google calendar. I use this method to record my freelance tasks. I work with students and such resources https://au.edubirdie.com/calculus-assignment-help help to communicate with them. Most of the tasks I write in a google calendar.
