You sign your DD-214 when you out process. You didn't notice it then? Something doesn't sound right about this story.

If you actually have a dishonorable discharge, depending on your state, you may not be able own firearms, vote, etc. It is similar to a felony. You don't get a DD for nose bleeds.
It sounds kind of fishy to me.

Chain of commands are more likely to discharge someone under general for a failed drug test or even let them ride their contract out (depending on how much is left) rather than try for a dishonorable discharge. It's just not very common.
