I have a new version of the article I wrote on AWOL issues in the Army. (huge thanks go to Susan Bassein of the GI Rights Hotline for helping me update it, as well as the On Watch editorial board who helped improve it a great deal in the editing process)
You can read it here: On Watch – January/February 2009 Issue, including “AWOL in the Army” Version 2.0
Also in the issue is an Addendum on AWOL/UA policies in the Navy, Marine Corps & Air Force, by my friend (and fellow MLTF co-chair) Kathleen Gilberd

Also I should mention that the layout editing (as well as some of the content editing) for this issue was done by my friend Rena.
