Understanding military records
I got my father's records and don't understand the difference between U.S. Army Reserve, Regular army and Active duty.
My father enlisted in regular army 8.15.41 to 8.27.43
was put on active duty 8.28.43 to 12.29.45
Re-enlisted in active service as a sgt. from 12.22.48 to 12.5.50His separation code is AR 615-365CG.
Then on 12.06.50 he got his commission back as a Lt.
and finally retired in l964. Can any one explain all this to me. I'm really confused about the separation on 12.5.50 and then next day he's a Lt. with separation papers from 12.6.50 to 9.30.64.Thanks
