Dear Mr. Taylor,

I submit this letter as my resignation from my commission in the United States Navy. I understand that, upon acceptance of this resignation, I will also receive a certificate confirming an honorable discharge. I am requesting detachment at the end of this month.

The reason I am seeking resignation at this time is due to the fact that my mother is currently undergoing cancer treatment and I need to assist with her care. I am the only immediate family member available to provide the care she needs at this time. In order for me to do this, I was informed that I would need to resign.

I was born on January 1, 1993 and started my commission in June of 2011 after being recruited at the New Parkland, CA Naval Recruitment Office. My commission is due to be completed in January. However, I am unable to wait until that point due to the urgency of the situation.

If it were possible, I would stay until my commission ends. However, I am grateful for the time I have been a part of the Navy and hope to leave on good terms. Please contact me should you wish to discuss this matter further.
