US military refusal to kill punishments

I have a modern-day character, currently working as a bodyguard, who had previously been in the (US) military as a sniper. One of this guy's biggest 'flaws' is his being an utter pushover for women, and as such will not kill them - this became a problem in his past when he refused to eliminate a female target.

My question is, what would be the repercussions of doing this? Is refusal to kill a specified target enough to get you kicked out of the military? If so, what type of discharge would it be considered (assuming the rest of his service had been good)? If not, what punishments would he face?

Terms searched: Court-martial, military discharge, military reasons for dismissal
