The issue is not whether you can evict active duty military for this, but whether you an evict a tenant for this. Military status is irrelevant to this issue.

Have you served the P/Q notices, establishing a record of this?

Do they pay within the period required by law and stated in the P/Q?

Have all late fees, if any, been paid?

You can post a p&q notice the day the rent is late and then if they do not pay within the period of time you stipulate you can proceed with an eviction. If he is military he most likely will not want an eviction on his records as he will get in trouble with the military.
Re: Call their First Sergeant now by Jon (DE) on March 2, 2012 @18:16 [ Reply ]
I'm a retired E-9 who spent 30 yrs active duty. Call the active members First Sergeant and explain the details. Make sure you have dates and documenation. Most likely, he/she will be called in and see the 1st Sgt or Commander and won't EVER do it again. However, just like civilians, the military has deadbeats and you may have to evict. Either way, the 1st Sgt should help you out.
