    Default Withdrawing From Military Service Prior to Ship Date

    I am 17. Last summer, two months after I turned 17 I decided to join the military. Now I will be 18 in June and my leave date is July, will I be punished for not going in?

    One assumes you signed up for the Delayed Entry Program?

    If so, write a letter to your recruiter, stating your intent to not go.

    Read here, and consider calling the hotline listed to speak with a counselor about how to proceed. Exiting the DEP may impact your ability to enlist later if you change your mind again.

    So I won't get into trouble with the government if I don't go in? I did sign up for the delayed entry program. All I have to do is let my recruiter know

    I am a former NCO with ten years of service. You will not get into trouble if you don't go. You only get into trouble if you have actually gone to basic training. Once you arrive you are officially there's! Don't sweat it.
