Hi my name is*****...

Hi my name is***** have signed a contract of 6 years with the Pennsylvania national guard. I'm a student, I live with my father and I support him. I have to go for basic training and AIT. I'm not interested to go at this period of time mainly due to school because I will have to miss one or more semesters which will lead me to fall behind. I would like to discuss with an attorney my situation to see what could be the consequences for me if I want to quit now and what others possibilities or choices I could have in other to avoid any penalties such as a bad discharge.Thank you for your understanding, I'm looking forward to hear from you.YACOUBA BAMBA.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Pennsylvania

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

Yes I ta;k to my drill sergeant but he told me thatt I will get a bad discharge
