Thank you for the information and your question. There is no set required time for a Command to release a Marine once they start the administrative processing paperwork. However, the Command will not want to keep you on the rolls any longer than they have to since that effects their ability to bring another enlistee onboard. Usually, assuming that the Command agrees that you should be discharged, which they generally would if a doctor recommends it, there should only be a few weeks until you go home.
Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the box above, I will receive credit for assisting you today. Thank you
Thank you for your reply. I can't say specifically since I don't know the particulars of their situation, but usually the only reason for a really prolonged hold is because they have injuries that they are being treated for and will not be released until they are released by medical. There could also be military justice issues or waiting for orders to a school/command if they are being retained. You have to take what you hear around you with a grain of sand since no one knows exactly what is in someone else's record. I can only tell you what the normal time would be in a case similar to what you described yours to be from the time the Command actually starts administrative processing paperwork.
