Dortrait was involuntarily separated from the active component after 11 years of honorable service in June 2011 as a result of the ‘Perform to Serve’ program policies. His discharge was based on his year group. He relocated from Japan to Honolulu, Hawaii and joined the Navy Reserves right after.

He advanced to the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer in 2019 and was approved shortly after to resume his career on active duty through the Reserve Component to Active Component program. Dortrait reported to Strike Fighter Squadron TWO (VFA-2), Naval Air Station Lemoore, California in October, 2019 and was selected to the Command Senior Chief program in February, 2021.
