I was researching and trying to get an accurate update on the current desertion numbers for the U.S. military (all branches). My last count was over 32,000 – a very sad number. The Defense Department has seemed to shut down the exact numbers and failed to give up-to-date totals.
No one writes about this anymore. It a real shame that the “all volunteer force” gives service members the right to desert their sworn duty and slaps them on the wrist for doing so! The ones that do their sworn duty and uphold the U.S. Constitution pay for it, as others couldn’t care less.
