I'm jw, here's the story.

A kid I went to high school with decided two days before he was to ship out that he would take a red eye flight from Hawaii to Atlanta, w/ out permission (awol) i think it is? :dontknow:

Well of course they caught up to him. This is the second time he's done this, so they're sending him on his tour w/ no pay.

I think it's great, he deserves it 100 times more.
Im jw if it's actually possible.

if you go AWOL/UA, the days you're gone are the days you owe the gov't money...i'm sure they're just going to take what he owes, bust him down in rank, and possibly suspend some pay, but he won't go over there for a whole tour w/o getting paid

ah ok. I wasn't sure.
He did get put down in rank, which wasn't much (he wasn't much to begin)

the only place you are going without pay is the brig.

Sounds like maybe this guy should be planning a trip to Canada instead.

he will get his money either way, hes just not going to get paid for those days. He could get an Article 15 but its all up to his Commander. Since this is the second time he's probably going to get a Field Grade Art 15 and lose all his rank and get half his pay taken away for 2 months and also get 45 days of extra duty. He's a POS and if his unit wasnt deploying, he probably would get the boot. NOW, if they want to, they can charge him with deserting. The maximum punishment under UCMJ for deserting is death! It wont happen or even get thought about, but its in the regs. His commander could sit on this and start a court martial packet and he could go to jail when his unit gets back. There's so much that can happen to him, but either way, he's gonna get his money, tax free too.
