In both cases, you can't get a job with the government or government contractor, but most every other employer won't even know about it.
    If we let this gal off, then you'll send a message to anyone else that it's ok to miss movement, because there aren't going to be any real conciquences.

    Other than honorable is not letting the gal off. That is the same discharge some one gets for failing a drug test.

    Do you really think we can have an army involved in two wars ( which I wish we weren't in) if we let off everyone who says I was just kidding I don't feel like going

    Hi, please read my post again. I specifically said I was not suggesting letting any one off. If you mean discharging people who won't go, what do you do, you cannot let people miss movements, you simply cannot. It would be bad for morale, it would be bad for discipline.

    A general disharge is letting her off, IMO. I think she should have two choices:

    1) Put her kid in foster care, deploy with her unit and if she performs well in Afghanistan, she can have her kid back. If she gets into trouble in Afghanistan, it's an automatic option #2.

    2) A stretch in the stockade and a dishonorable discharge and lose custody of her kid for being an unfit mother.

    I admit I missed the time in jail part of your response, sorry
