    Maybe she should be put in front of a fire squad and shot for treason, huh?

    What an incredibly stupid comment. No, we do not do that. She should probably be discharged on an "Other than", she is clearly not able to handle military life.

    No, just like HER, if YOU missed one of your deployments because you are a single parent and had no one to take care of your kid you'd likely be in this situation, not court marshalled.

    There's an army policy about this regardless of sex. Single parent, not single female parent.

    If the reason she had to miss deployment in the manner she did turns out to be her mishandling the situation, as is likely to my mind, she will at the very least face NJP, and will likely be out of the military. Considering the severity of missing movement, this is likely the end of her military career.

    I think she should be dishonorably discharged on the grounds that she failed to deploy. Possibly even desertion in the face of the enemy. The latter carries the death penalty.

    Well, actually, you might just get court martialed, especially if the JAG can prove parental neglect of a child, or some sort of abuse.

    Don't think that because she's a sinlge parent that didn't have anyone to watch her kid, that this is just gonna be ok.

    There's a huge misunderstanding in this thread about how the military deals with single parents.

    If you are a single parent (male or female - but there are far more single females than males) then you shouldn't even BE joining the army for this exact REASON. You should take care of your kids, the army often prevents that from happening - case and point!
    Sorry - but you just shouldn't.

    Aside that fact, since she was already in it and set to deploy she SHOULD have addressed her command about it and they would have been able to oblidge without ANY drama - some paperwork, reassignment, tada...done.

    STUPID women make us NORMAL women look bad!

    "equal pay for equal work..." until that equal work isn't being done but then they still want equal pay for nothing.

    Her **** is inexcusable - she was officially awol and that a dire offense. I feel they shouldn't give her any slack at all. She should have dealt with it the RIGHT Way - and just *ladeda* isn't it!
    wow. you seem pretty hostile about this. every woman can't just stay at home and care for kids you know. seems she has been trying to earn a living. would you be this hard on a single dad?
