This Comment examines the military's current procedure for discharging service-members and imposing undesirable, other-than-honorable service, characterizations on their service records. The author suggests that due to the potential for erroneous imposition of damaging other-than-honorable service characterizations, the process of handling such discharges should be made procedurally more careful. The author further suggests that either additional due process rights be grafted onto the current administrative discharge system, or that the other-than-honorable discharge process be placed in the hands of the military court-martial system.
