I can’t believe this has even become an issue. If a military member deserts then they deserve only to be confined for a period determined by a court martial proceeding. As a military veteran I find the Bowe situation disgusting and that six soldiers were killed searching for him, and we had to turn five Taliban over to secure Bowe’s freedom. And to have this deserter then asking for back pay just upsets the hell out of me. A deserter deserves prison time and nothing else!
