Bergdahl, Franks: A tale of 2 'deserters.'

 

Three months before Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl walked off his base in Afghanistan, 2nd Lt. Lawrence Franks walked away from his in upstate New York.

Two months before Bergdahl was returned to U.S. custody in Landstuhl, Germany, on May 31, 2014, Franks turned himself in at the Army garrison in Wiesbaden, Germany.

Both men had been gone for five years. But while Bergdahl, 30, awaits court-martial on desertion and misconduct charges, Franks, 29, awaits release from the prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.

I don't know all the facts in either case. As flawed as it is I will wait for people assigned to judge and presented the facts as much as possible to make the judgement before I get my rope.

 

years ago when John Kerry was running for Pres. it was presented that his wound was so small that it could be covered by a band aid. I have seen bullet holes that had not exited be able to be covered by a band aid. This is just in example. Heck once I got hit by some wire from a booby trap that slapped me acrosse the chest. I was in an OD t-shirt. I still don't get this but it cut my chest (minamally) but didn't cut my shirt. I realize that if it had hit pointed end first it could have all been different.

Thanks bigjim. An interesting concept, innocent until proven guilty.
