|The Delayed Enlistment Program|
|Sample DEP Discharge Request Letter|
In accordance with Department of Defense (DOD) Directive 1332.14, request that I be discharged from the Delayed Enlistment Program (DEP), of the United States Air Force.
The reason for my request is that I have been accepted for a college scholarship. I wish to pursue this scholarship option, and no longer desire to be a member of the United States Air Force.
My recruiter is TSgt Joe Smith. I enlisted in the DEP on 12 March 2003 at the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) in New York City. I am scheduled to report for active duty on 3 June 2003.
I request prompt consideration of my discharge request, and notification in writing at the address above. In the event this request is not processed by my scheduled date to report for active duty, request extension of my delay status until the separation request has been processed.
