Attorney Mark Waple said Monday it is not yet clear if Lisa Pagan will receive an honorable discharge or a general discharge under honorable conditions.

Pagan was recalled to the Army four years after being released from active duty, which is allowed under the military's "individual ready reserve" program. But she says she had no one to care for her children.

After filing several unsuccessful appeals, Pagan reported for duty Monday at Fort Benning, Ga., with her children. Waple said she was told a few hours later she would be discharged as soon as is possible.
