My girlfriend is 3 months from being permanently discharged

My girlfriend is 3 months from being permanently discharged from the USMC and just found out she is being deployed to Syria. She is 39 years old for Christ's sake! Is there anyway she can get around this? I mean, doesn't the USMC need to honor when it has promised a marine to be released? Thanks for any advice.

USMC BCP Seperation. Iam currently in the process of being

USMC BCP Seperation.Iam currently in the process of being separated and I have 5 days for a rebuttal. I looked up the MCO and saw that there are numerous sections that were not done during my time on BCP. Also during my final weigh in they did not follow proper procedure in taking my measurements. As well in the MCO it states that the packet must be finalized than turned into CO. This was not done. The CO's signature was already there prior to the paperwork being filled out. Do I have a chance to fight this?
