Joe Biden's son was dishonorably discharged from the U.S. Navy.

Even though Hunter Biden was discharged from the U.S. Navy, the details were not released on whether it was a regular or dishonorable discharge.

Even though Hunter Biden was discharged from the U.S. Navy, the details were not released on whether it was a regular or dishonorable discharge.Democrats Presidential candidate Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, was relieved from the U.S.Navy after he tested positive for cocaine in Urinalysis on February 18, 2014. Reuters had published that Navy spokesman Commander Ryan Perry had told Reuters that Hunter Biden was discharged from the Navy reserve in February 2014. Still, he would not disclose any details because privacy law prevented it.

Hunter revealed about his personal life and service life in 'The View', a T.V show. He has revealed that he was addicted to drugs in his teenage years and that he had joined Archer on the Burisma board in April 2014.

Hunter recalls that on May 7, 2013, he was assigned to a Reserve unit at Naval Station Norfolk. He wished to work in Naval Intelligence, but he was offered a job in the public affairs unit. He joined the service with two waivers, one for his age and the other for his previous drug addict. On the first weekend of Reserve duty, he had bummed a cigarette from unknown persons, and on the first day, he had given a urine sample for testing. In a month, he had received a letter which mentioned that cocaine was found in his urine analysis.

Hunter wrote a letter to the Navy that he is unaware of how it was found in his system. An appeal panel was unlikely to believe his words that he had ingested the drugs unknowingly. If appealing the decision, it would be a closed hearing, testimony to the witnesses, and there were many chances that it would be leaked to the media, so he did not appeal. He was discharged from his service on February 18, 2014.

The U.S. Department of Defense does not release personnel documents of service members. Unless Hunter publishes his records, the people may never know his discharge character.
