    Probably he was away shopping for a new spouse who wont call the news people every time he decides to take a time out.The story earlier said he was not in MD, now thats where he shows,which means he was somewhere else then finally went there.

    Why can't anything be private anymore? He was gone, what maybe 24 hours? Come on..he's a soldier. He's fighting to keep YOU and YOUR COUNTRY safe. Leave him alone. He deserves a break, too!

    It said in one of the earlier articles that the wife was afraid he would harm himself. Sounds to me that there was an argument or something along them lines, and he had to get away.

    In it real deep?

    Soldiers take unauthorized leave all the time. Some of them make the best Company Commanders and Sergeant Majors in the Army. Screw up, move up as they say. The threat of UCMJ action for AWOL is no deterrent any more. Soldiers don't even show up for deployment and what happens to them? Absolutely nothing! Been there, seen it.

    @WhenWillItStop, remember it still takes two legs to carry one airborne tail hole. LOL

    Rabid_Wolf, I was as amazed as you are. They make it as easy as possible on them and then wonder why the stress out so much when the possibility of action comes around let alone some real action. I firmly believe that if you trully want protection you should buy a gun.

    Yeah this Soldier was absent, 24 hours after that he became AWOL. He's in it real deep. Weak minds develop weak bodies.

    Paratroopers lead the way!!
