For persons aged 17 and older who are in scope, HONDSCGRD reports if the person has been honorably discharged from active duty in the Armed Forces.
This variable does not differentiate among those who were not honorably discharged and served in the Armed Forces, and those who were not honorably discharged because they did not serve in the Armed Forces. Current military service is reported in the variable NOWAFRD, but this does not report past service. Persons who are currently serving on active duty are given a distinct code.
