Separation Boards and Boards of Inquiry
Matt Jubelt has years of experience counseling service members through command inquiries, administrative investigations as well as enlisted and officer separations.

The procedures for the separation of enlisted personnel is dependent upon the component of service. Although Active Duty enlisted separations are regulated under AR 635-300, Reserve and National Guard enlisted separations are regulated under AR 135-178. Each regulation sets forth different procedures, timelines and protocols for each component. Similarly, Active duty officer elimination boards are regulated by AR 600-8-24. While Reserve and National Guard Officer separations are regulated by AR 135-175. In all instances, the Procedures for Administrative Investigations and Boards of Officers as established under AR 15-6 dictates the general guidelines for all formal board procedures where the other regulations are silent.
