A New Hampshire National Guard member charged with desertion while trying to get custody of her daughter planned to turn herself in Tuesday at Fort Dix, her lawyer said.
Spc. Lisa Hayes, 32, of Rindge, left at 2 a.m. to drive to Fort Dix with her 7-year-old daughter, Brystal, said lawyer Linda Theroux, who represented Hayes in the custody case.
Hayes, who went on emergency leave from the Army in February after learning of possible domestic violence in her ex-husband's home, faces up to two years in military prison for staying in New Hampshire after her leave expired.
Although several military lawyers tried to help Hayes negotiate a deal for surrendering, the Army gave her no assurances she wouldn't be jailed immediately upon her arrival at Fort Dix in New Jersey, said Theroux. The Army was aware she would be bringing her daughter because Hayes did not have any family me
Once you join Bush's military, you are no longer a human beling whose needs are considered for any reason. You will serve as long as they want and you will not leave for any reason.
Wonder why they've had to lower their standards, refuse to let anyone out and have tens of thousands of mercenaries getting paid obscene amounts of money to conduct this war?
