What? <br />
<br />
Enlisted can resign? They rode a man to death? <br />
<br />
Anyone know any background?

Maybe he was IRR and came on orders for some extra money. I don't think they sign a contract.

It might actually be an officer and the media got the rank wrong. Wouldn't surprise me. Wouldn't be the first time either.

Or it could be simply a request for administrative separation (i.e., resignation).

Army enlisted have certain codes of "resignation" when serving "unspecified enlistment". There are multiple categories for this, including, but not limited to,
1) for the good of the service;
2) in lieu of resignation for misconduct or inefficiency;
3) in lieu of board action when based on unfitness;
4) in liew of board action when base on unsuitability;
5) unconditional resignation; and
6) in lieu of seperation for disloyalty or subversion.

So, I think the operative phrase is "unspecified enlistment" which could possibly combine BR34's and awbrown's comments.

I started this with "Army enlisted" but I think they are actually DoD codes, which means they could apply across all branches. I don't think the Corps permits too many of these. My only experience with these types has been with those individuals with dual citizenships.
