I joined the army and left to basic training January 8th 2018. Although bct was a grueling experience I stuck through it becasue I knew it was the right thing to do. Fast forward, now being in AIT I havent realized how much the army life doesn't fit into my future and what I want in my life. Since ive been in the army I've been incredibly depressed but I'm too private to disclose this info with anyone including my family. I havent acted on this and talk to the chain of command because I'm scared they wont let me go. I just want as much information about this as possible please.

I am sorry for this dilemma. But I do not understand your specific question. Are you asking if you can unilaterally leave (just walk away) without recourse?

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.
