null prossed -what does this mean?

About 4-5 years ago my husband was taken into custody for domestic violence-because I refused to press charges it was the state of VA vs him. The case was dismissed and no charges filed against him.

Now he is applying to go into the army-this is coming up on his background check.

does the wording null prossed mean charges were dropped? Or case dismissed? If not, he probably will not be allowed to serve. please advise.
