    Trying to get out of the army as soon as I can I’m being chaptered out with a 5-17 and don’t know what to do at all really no help.

      A 5-17 normally takes a little longer than other chapters as it requires mental evaluations to support. However, if you want out, as you indicate, then follow everything your command tells you to do. Be where you are supposed to be, make all of your medical appointments as directed, and stay out of trouble. Bottom line: be a model Soldier during this process. The less aggravation you provide your command, the smoother it will be. During your process, you will be provided the opportunity to speak with an attorney at Trial Defense Services. That attorney will be best suited to advise you on the process and ensure you are aware of your rights.

      I hope this helps.
