What does a BA code on my ERB mean?


PEB Forum Regular Member
I just went for my final out at Tripler and they gave me my erb and it had a new flag on it. It was BA and they would only say it was an elimination code and said they didnt want to get involved. Does this code mean nothing to me or is this my company trying to screw me over one last time? If anyone could help me with this I would be greatly thankful.

The first letter is the reason code and the second is the type of report. In your case, the B stands for Elimination-field initiated and the A stands for an initial report.
Here is a link to the regulation that covers flags: http://armypubs.army.mil/epubs/pdf/R600_8_2.PDF

I guess you will have to talk to someone in your COC and find out why they entered this flag.

Sorry to bring up a dead thread, but this actually pops on as one of the top searches on google, so I thought I'd try to help. My friend had this program, called ERB reader. It basically took your ERB and translated it into plain English, so you could understand exactly what it is without having to deal with S1 (who oftentimes don't even know what they're doing). Here's the site where you can get the program. Hope this helps other people out there-http://www.enlistedrecordsbrief.com/
