Just say you were in Alabama. I hear that works.....
I guess the rules have changed:
A soldier who says he refused to report to duty because he opposes the war in Iraq (news - web sites) will be assigned regular duties while commanders decide whether to prosecute him for a five-month absence, a Fort Stewart official said Wednesday.
Mejia, 28, a Florida National Guardsman, is seeking conscientious objector status. On Tuesday, a Florida Guard spokesman said Mejia has been classified as a deserter.
If Mejia is charged with desertion, he could get up to five years in prison.
In the old days, if you didn't show up, you got sent to Business School.
Which is actually worse when you think about it....
