David the deserter

I thought this was a rather peculiar case, what do you think should happen to the man?

After 28 years David A Hemler tells the truth - DN.SE

OSI's most wanted page on him.

Quote:
In October 1984, a 21-year-old American Airman deserted and hitch-hiked from an Air Force base in Augsburg, Germany to Stockholm. He built himself a life in Sweden – never sharing his secret with anyone, while becoming one of the U.S. Air Force’s eight most wanted fugitives. Today, David A. Hemler, 49, comes forward in an exclusive interview with Dagens Nyheter (DN), Stockholm.

Arrest him, charge him, give him a dishonorable discharge and let him rot in prison for a sentence and make sure he is exiled from coming to the US.

That age enchanced picture is almost dead on, amazing how far technology has come.

never joined and I'll leave it to those that did to decide the fate of their own if they even wish to claim him as such.

desertion is a crime, you don't have to be a criminal to decide what you think is a deserving punishment for a crime.

Desertion should only be a crime during wartime. This got deserted during one of the longest outbreaks of peacetime in US history. I say just ban him from ever coming back to the US and be done with it.

Leave him alone, he doesn't seem to be interested in returning to the US anyway.

You can get a job with the Swedish government when they don't know what country you're a citizen of? Their background check process must really suck.

Maybe my views are different because i am not a US citizen, nor have i served in the military, but he was promised a degree and good pay. If my employer promised this, and did not keep his end of the bargain, i'd leave.. Simple as that.

I know things don't work as simple like that in the military, but i can understand his reason to desert. You just can't quit a job like that like you would a civilian job.

Is he a criminal? By military law he probably is, but considering the time passed, and having built up a new life in sweden, i'd say make him a persona non grata in the states and leave it at that.
