News: Sgt. Stein separated with 'Other than Honorable' Discharge
The Commanding General for Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego has reviewed the findings and recommendations of the administrative separation board regarding the misconduct of Sgt. Gary Stein. The Commanding General found that the board was conducted in accordance with law and regulation, that the findings of misconduct were supported by the evidence of record, and thus has approved the board’s recommendation that Sgt. Stein be separated from the Marine Corps with an "other than honorable" discharge.
A Marine being separated as a result of adverse conduct can receive an other than honorable characterization of discharge if the basis for separation is the commission of a serious offense which is a significant departure from the conduct expected of a Marine. Marines administratively separated with an “other than honorable” discharge are automatically reduced to pay grade E-3, to become effective upon separation.
