Can I back out of my military contract?

Every recruiter on this earth is going to give me a blanket party for this one. If you don't know what a blanket party is, then you need to watch Full Metal Jacket. No it's not a party where we all lie under the blanket and have chips, (I think the navy does that) Its where they tie me down and beat the shit outta.

Anyways I digress

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There I said it.. YES!!!!!!!!!!
you can back out of your contract.

No the police are not going to take you to jail
No you are not going to lose any kind of govt grant or loans for college or anything like that
No you are not going to have to pay a fine
No this is not going on any criminal record
No this is not going to effect your taxes
No this is not going to effect any future endeavors to apply for a govt Job.

Log on, find a job and get to work.  SnagAJob

If you have not left for basic yet then you can walk at anytime you feel like it. Your recruiter will do what he can to make you believe otherwise but the truth is you can walk and there is nothing they can do.

Now they may blackball you from joining in the future by putting comments that other recruiters can see on your file, but if you have a valid excuse and the new recruiter needs to make goal you should have no problem getting in. (but you didn't want to get in in the first place)

So to answer this question No you don't have to go to basic. Even if you rose your right hand and swore to go. you can still back out.
