    A soldier--especially an officer--doesn't have to be, "on leave", to have an authorized absence.

    I let a guy go home one time, to deal with a divorce and he stayed gone from three weeks. The PL, 1SG and the commander all knew about it and he was listed as, "present", on the morning reports. He wasn't physically with the unit, he wasn't, "on leave", and he wasn't AWOL.

    And Bush's reasoning was?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    What other 25 things had you done to piss off your 1SG, up to that point?

    I dunno and it's irrelevant. He might have been surfing and chasing pussy in Phuket, Thailand for all I know. But, because he was never listed as AWOL, nor was he charged with anything, he wasn't AWOL.

    It does matter. If he said, look this was happening, I let the commander know, that would end it. Instead, he looks priviledged, treated differently.

    Nothing. I was actually well liked. We got along well.

    none of your freaking business. his CO thought it was a good reason and that should be good enough for you.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    It still doesn't mean he was AWOL.

    You were in the service long enough to know that everyone doesn't get treated the same. Nothing new there.

    Had a guy in my platoon when I was at Fort Polk, whose dad was a brigade commander in 3rd ID. His dad called my commander and told him to work that kid's ass off and, "make a man out of him". That poor sumbitch couldn't catch a break.

    then why did they stick it to you when they had other option available?

    May be the reason that you only got extra duty. Were you listed as, "AWOL", or, "absent". They're different.
