How can we rescind consent for a 17 year old high school recruit in the Marines?
Individuals must be at least 17 years old to enlist in the US Military with parental consent and 18 without parental consent.
Recruits must also have a high school diploma or GED.
Commitment to the military is based on a contract, which means that people are legally bound to serve their term. However in some cases, if during basic training they are found to be grossly incompatible with the military they may receive an administrative discharge for the convenience of the service.
You may want to closely examine the consent signed by the parents to verify exactly to what they gave their consent. The consent may have included a waiver of the high school diploma requirement as well as the age.
If it is believed that the minor and the parents did not fully understand the implications of enlistment, they could petition the recruiter's supervisor for him/her to review the situation.
