A little more info. I do not understand the Desertion the rules must have been different. If he kept changing it does not seem like he deserted.

Thank you so much!!

This is just what I wanted!

I had another relative that had a desertion charge, later removed, he was in the hospital in DC and gov't thought he had deserted.

Thank you again.
