someone i know showed back up one day. he did a tour in Iraq, Army ( not national guard ) then a few months after the tour, he shows up out of the blue, saying "meh, i just got in my car, drove off base. they wont come looking for me"
im guessing there is WAY more to the story,
how do i find out if there were other circumstances, say, dishonorable discharge or something? hell, could have been a dont ask, dont tell issue
it just seems weird that someone can say fuckit,im foing, and not be picked up a year + later when he still had 1.5 years to go.
