    I screwed up and am paying big time. Never been in trouble before but one mistake and one stupid issue and I am seperated. But I have learned my lesson. But I received discharge code of RE-3K and am shocked that I cannot be considered for re-enlistment. I am already working hard on remediation outside USNA wheher I am in or out, I realize that I need to figure out black and white. and I can tell you plenty at USNA learn to cover gray and black and white is hard for many others.
    have connected with retired rear admiral who is mentoring me. I have returne to my spiritual roots which is probably how the screw up started. am doing community service. plan to begin civilian college in Jan. i plan to make this next year one of even more growth. I have grown up immensely over the last 6 months. I am o longer 19, more like became an adult overnight. but I plan to keep the growth going.

    I know former midshipmen can ask for readmission after one year. but does the RE-3K mean it is useless? that even hard work and fixing my deficiency over he next year will mean nothing?

    It's obvious from your sentence structure, punctuation and slightly rambling post that you're really hurting. Fingers don't function right and thoughts get tangled. Knowing first hand what you had to go through to get appointed, I know you must be heart broken.

    Emotions aside, the code you mentioned means "Disenrolled from the Naval Academy, not considered qualified for enlistment". Holy Smokes -- you did screw up big time, but you've also acknowledged the failure. That is step #1 on the road to redemption.

    For the benefit of those who suspect but really can't say for sure, examples of personal failures leading to such a dis enrollment would certainly be educational.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    whichever way it turns out, you can "serve your country" in many ways having nothing to do with the Department of War.

    If I were you I'd go to a civilian college, explore other ways to serve your country, and pursue those goals. Getting separated from the USNA is not a felony, so it won't be on your record. If you ever take a job that needs a security clearance, their stance on you will depend on what you did to get separated.

    Who's to say you won't have an even more impactful life doing something other than being an officer in the Navy?

    A Mid was separated a year ago with the same discharge code. See what 3 attorneys said of his case as he has attempted to re-enlist. In a nutshell, they seem to say ...it depends upon your class level at USNA and your infraction. One notable comment, that while we are not officially in a "draw down" or RIF, it seems many are being released for various reasons, some of which appear to be innocuous.
