ABSTRACT
The article discusses the military service obligation from the perspective of the enlistment contract and the legal rules applied to its enforcement. It examines whether the enlistment contract is enforceable against servicemembers who want to breach it and leave military service. It refers to the enlistment contract as the main vehicle for individuals to join the Armed Forces and is viewed by courts as an ordinary contract. It indicates that enlistment contracts are examples of contracts for personal services and the Armed Forces are not legally allowed to enforce enlistment contracts against servicemembers who decide to breach them before they end. It confirms the assumption that enlistment contracts are enforceable despite their personal quality.
