air force re-enlistment

My story is taking place in current day USA (in multiple states). 

The character is in fire protection and his enlistment (6 year) is about to be up.  He’s around 24.  I was wondering how long you have to decide if you want to re-enlist; like do you have to be certain and start the process two months ahead of time, how long do you have to back out?  Ultimately he’s not going to re-enlist, but he’s seriously thinking about it and doesn’t at the last minute.  I need to know when that last minute is.

I’ve googled things like ‘when to re-enlist air force’ and ‘time frame for re-enlistment’  I’ve also tried looking on wikipedia but haven’t been able to find what I’m looking for.

I was also thinking about a medical discharge.  From what I’ve been able to find it seems like it’s either a really long and difficult process, or he would have to be really badly injured (like not able to heal and join the fire department later) to get a discharge.  Am I right?  He just needs to get out fairly quickly and be able to be a fireman afterwards.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
