  • Every servicemember is assigned a “character of service” or “discharge status” upon leaving military service. While most servicemembers receive Honorable discharge statuses, a substantial percentage—approximately 7 percent of (American) veterans discharged since 1980—receive discharge statuses that are not Honorable, which are known as “bad paper.” Servicemembers usually get “bad paper” because of some alleged misconduct, though that misconduct frequently is minor, for a military-only offense, or not proved in any court. Studies also show that many servicemembers are separated with bad paper for misconduct related to a service-related mental or physical health condition or Military Sexual Trauma (MST).

  • Others may have been discharged with bad paper based on discriminatory policies, such as the now-repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) policy.
