After 9 years my husband was apprehended for desertion, what now?
My husband was in the Army for 2 years. He was sick injured and incredibly mistreated. He tried to go through the proper chain of command to get taken care of and to no avail he chose to go AWOL. Now 9 years later he has been apprehended. We have lived in the same city, so he hasn't been running, he pays his taxes, and has tried to be a productive member of society. Through these past 9 years he has contimplated going back into service I held him back. In our case would he have any leeway at all for this or what should we expect for his punishment. Considering he left during peace time and for the sake of his health what can we expect from trial.
