As long as the infraction was during the current enlistment period, then it can be used to substantiate a pattern of misconduct. In rare circumstances misconduct from a previous enlistment or period of service may be used to substantiate a separation if the Command was not aware of the misconduct, but special rules apply.
In this case, it appears the previous misconduct from TRADOC can be used to establish a pattern, but it also depends how far apart in time, the number, and the severity of each infraction is. If they are reaching back to TRADOC to establish a pattern, then they might be reaching. However, the information can always be listed in the “other misconduct” paragraph of the separation notice to substantiate character of service.
