Does the narrative reason for separation matter on the dd214 if it’s an entry level uncharacterized ?
What does this mean, and would this prevent me from getting employment? If so, would it most likely be government jobs that are affected or civilian jobs also? Does this prevent me or lessen my chances of being able to go to school/get healthcare/or get loans etc. Does this type of discharge put me at bad terms with the gov/military? Will this in general affect my civilian life? Does this show up on background checks? how deep does the employer have to dig to find this doc? If they don’t ask do I still have to tell them about my dd214 and the nature of my discharge? Is this discharge a really bad thing? Am I screwed for the rest of my life? I’ve been hearing different things everywhere so it would be appreciated if my questions can be answered clearly. Fill me in on some extra details to the best of your professional knowledge if you can

If I am recalling your previous post and my previous answer properly--I would amend my initial response since you have provided additional information. My amended response would be that your military service IS going to be a more of a problem for you downstream than I originally opined---won't "ruin" your life, but does likely close the door to jobs requiring federal government background investigation, maybe state level too. Might raise a question with some civilian employers (especially larger firms/company's/organizations, Colleges and Universities) that you will have to address separately.
