I cannot seem to find this information anywhere. What would happen if one were to accept commission and not fulfill their contractual obligations?

i think you need to give more information. Like what? Fail a PT test, not show up to work? Most things fall under the UCMJ and all the rest usually falls under AR's, Commanders policies, etc. Unless your going in a different direction with this question, I would say, it would fall under the UCMJ.

What Rme4life said!:yeahthat:

Also, any $$ - bonus you had received would have to be given back...

My Da told me there were 2 things you never wanted to mess with: Mother Nature and the Federal Government:wink2:

Sorry about caps, didn't pay attention until done.

I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE NOT TRULY IN UNTIL YOU DO YOUR COMMISSIONING 72 HOURS BEFORE YOU REPORT. THINKS CHANGE ONCE YOUR REPORT FOR ACTIVE DUTY VS BEING IN THE IRR AWAITING GOING ON ACTIVE. I KNOW ON THE ENLISTED SIDE IF A KID DECIEDEDS TO GET OUT BEFORE GOING TO MEPS TO SHIP OUT HE CAN WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS, THAT IS WHY THEY GIVE OUT BONUSES AFTER YOUR REPORT. WITH THE TIME FRAME NEEDED TO GET A COMMISSION THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR DECISION ONE WAY OR THE OTHER. IF YOU ARE ON ACTIVE ALREADY IT WILL BE HARD TO GET OUT BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE. NEED TO THINK ABOUT REENLISTMENT CODE IF YOU ARE ON ACTIVE, THAT CAN EFFECT ANY JOBS WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND POSSIBLILY THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT ALSO. I AGREE WITH WHAT ATHENA55 SAYS
