    Military Reenlistment Codes

    The RE code listed on a DD 214 provides the military with information about your
    ability to reenlist in the armed services. The codes and the ability to reenlist vary
    from service to service. For example, a sailor may be discharged due to motion
    sickness but this may not prevent them from serving in the Army.
