Leaving Military Service

I remember that you have up until 120 after signing your contract to back out. There was a person in my basic class that got out that way. If you have not yet signed a contract you can back out. If you are in delayed entry you can back out. You have to put in in writing, but you can back out by submitting in writing to your commanding officer that you no longer want in. Check the specifics for your branch and pay grade (I was enlisted) and check with a lawyer to look over your contract if you have signed.

...Then they came for me —
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
