Good luck in whatever you decide.
In a post awhile back I commented about how we need people in the military with this mindset. Remember, your oath is to the constitution, not to the President, not to Congress, not to your Captain. I made the argument that we need liberty-minded men and women within the armed forces (especially the officer side) that are willing to disobey unconstitutional orders. If all liberty minded people got out of the military, think of what is left: sheep that will do whatever they are told: unconstitutional or not.
I have been in the Marine Corps for 7 years and while I joined for "patriotism," I finally woke up and found what my role is in the military, and it's just what my oath was when I stood in MEPS and raised my right hand: to support and defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic.
So before you bail out, just remember that. I will support your choice either way. I'm attached to an ROTC unit right now and we just had a guy bail out for this same reason. He just talked to the Captain, ended up going to the CO, and he's no longer a part of it. Luckily, he was a brand new freshman so didn't have much to pay back. You may have to.
Best of luck to you, get ahold of me if you have any more questions.
Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty. -Thomas Jefferson
