I want to get out of USMC Reserves. How do I do that?

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you overseas or stateside?

Stateside

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?

I found that the reserves are just a waste of time and that I want to continue with college education. I haven't talked to the chain of command as I found out that they simply don't care.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No and I'm okay with discharge "other"

Marine, I am sorry for this dilemma...but unsure of your specific question...you ask "how can I get out of the reserves"...what does that mean? Are you under the impression that there is some secrete method you can use to walk away from your contract ?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
