This is a voluntary military. A citizen-soldier should be allowed to voluntarily leave, as well, as long as their leaving does not harm others. Our military is political and performs missions along political lines. If a person decides that they cannot support the military any more due to unethical or immoral requests, and activities that go against their beliefs, they should be allowed to leave. They should also be paid for the time the performed and worked actively. I don’t believe that most of Congress should be paid, because they have desserted America and its Citizens, and actually have harmed innocent victim-Citizens.
