Actually, military members can get out before their time is up, and still get honorable discharges from it. Pretty sure they don't advertise that fact, but my platoon sergeant even had a quote hanging in his office about it. I don't recall the general it was from, and the quote is paraphrased, but it was something along the lines of:
"We are a volunteer service. If someone doesn't meet our standards, we thank them politely for trying and send the home."
It's not exactly the same as giving two weeks notice at the office, but it's hardly unheard of.
