Yesterday in Reuters online there was an article regarding an
unfortunate fellow who deserted from the Marines in 1968 and had
landed immigrant status in Canada. He is unfortunate because he was
recently busted at the border for desertion and is now being held in
Camp Pendleton, despite the fact that he is a legal immigrant of
Canada and his alleged "crime" took place almost thirty years ago.
The man, Randy Caudill, is 48 and joined the Marines in 1966. Two
years later he deserted. He will most likely be charged with
desertion-a very serious crime in the military realm.

I hope to have more info in the future...
