This response is provided based on the information you shared and should not be used as the sole source for making a decision. You should seek guidance from the chain of command, IG, JAG or other certified agencies before making any decisions. How you chose to use this information is totally up to you and is your sole responsibility.

Most likely they can do this. However there may be some options available to you!

I do not believe there is a time limit, but would assume that waiting a year seems unreasonable and could be fought.

Depending on how much time you have in service you may be eligible for a separation board. If so you might consider using the board option to hear your case.
