Information about the Delayed Enlistment Program:
Getting out of the Delayed Entry Program (also known as the Delayed Enlistment Program or DEP) is much easier than you have probably been told. You do have a right to get out. And you will not be alone: the Department of Defense reported that 15% - 24% of those in the DEP in 1999 changed their minds and left the program. If you are having second thoughts for any reason, it is best to get out now. It is much more difficult after you have started training.
Bread for the Enemy: A Peace and Justice Lectionary will guide you on the journey of God’s people through the Bible as they learn about peacemaking. If you are a member of the armed services or in the Delayed Enlistment Program, we’ll send you a copy free! Just e-mail us.
Other resources to help you think about Christ’s call to peace are on our resources pages.
