In the Viet Nam era there were stories of individuals threatened with prosecution who were advised the charges would be dropped if they joined the Army.

I wonder if that practice continues?


probably . especially in small towns, for minor infractions
(though the draft might have made a difference


The Army seemed to have its share of "casuals" who were waiting for "orders"--usually a General Discharge (becomes honorable after x years) so they could leave the service and get on with their lives.


?? wasn't that true of nearly all draftees? counting the hours till ETS
( i still have one of my several ETS calendars )
