If you choose to deny orders usually to Recruiting,Drill Instructor or Combat Instructor you receive the RE-30 basically forcing you out since it makes you ineligible for reenlistmentWhen I search google, I see people talking about it, but it never explains what this actually is. What is this?
Re-enlistment code. In the Marine Corps an RE-3 means you are ineligible for re-enlistment for some reason, which is indicated by the letter after the number. In this case an RE-3O means the Marine refused orders and cannot reenlist without CMC approval. Yes you read that right.When I search google, I see people talking about it, but it never explains what this actually is. What is this?
@Polar Bear - Thanks. Know any way around this?Yes, hope that helps
RE codes don't stop them from recalling you. I was an RE-3B as I got out a month early to start college in the fall semester. Three years later I had been involuntarily recalled.@Arf - FY20 HQMC SPECIAL DUTY ASSIGNMENT SELECTION TEAM (HSST) PART 2 > United States Marine Corps Flagship > Messages Display
7.b. Once the approved RELM with designated class assignment is returned to the unit, Marines will have no more than 15 days to accept the obligated service. Those Marines that decline to gain the obligated service necessary for their assignment to an SDA will be issued an RE-3O reenlistment code in accordance with references (c) and (d).
I refused to extend or re-enlist to gain the obligated service necessary to complete my recruiting orders.

"I have been assigned reenlistment eligibility code RE-3O.Reason: I will not reenlist/extend to deploy. I have been advised thatMarines assigned this code are not eligible for promotion, reenlistment,commissioning or warrant officer programs, special education programs, orinvoluntary separation pay unless specifically authorized by the CMC (MMEA).I have been given the opportunity to submit a statement and that statement,if submitted, will be filed on the document side of my SRB. I choose to/notto submit a statement."
EDIT: I just noticed that this last RE-3O was for refusing to deploy. That was not my case. Just to avoid confusion for anyone.
Were you HSST’ed? I had orders for recruiting and I denied them. I was a Staff-Select and I had to deny my promotion. It seems to me that getting out a month early isn’t too big a deal. I can see why the Corps doesn’t want me. I didn’t give back to them and so I paid the price. I would LOVE for them to recall me. Even then I’d have TIG/TIS hurdles. I’ve been off contract now for 6 years and my TS expired 2 years ago. I don’t think a recall is going to happen for me unfortunately.RE codes don't stop them from recalling you.
