Chapter 7: Defective Enlistments/Reenlistments and Extensions


Fraudulent enlistment is the procurement of an enlistment, reenlistment, or period of active service through any deliberate material misrepresentation, omission, or concealment of information which, if known and considered by the Army at the time of enlistment or reenlistment, might have resulted in rejection.

Some examples of fraudulent enlistment are:

Paragraph 7-17(8) reads "Soldiers who were applicants without a spouse at the time of enlistment and who executed the certificate required by AR 601-210 will be processed for separation for fraudulent entry if custody of the children is regained by court decree, as provided by State law, or as a result of the children resuming residency with the soldier instead of the legal custodian. Because the soldier certified at enlistment that the custody arrangement was intended to remain in full force and effect during the term of enlistment, the burden is on the soldier to demonstrate that the regaining of custody is not contrary to statements made at the time of enlistment."
