Here’s an interesting piece of news on this topic.
Hopefully you are not this person:
A former United States Army serviceman is now waiting for his deportation to face a court martial for deserting his post[.] The deserter was identified as Michael Lawrence Eastwood of Glendale, California and is now detained at the Bureau of Immigration (BI) detention facility in Bicutan, Taguig City. BI Chief Ronaldo Ledesma said Eastwood, 41, went AWOL (absence without official leave) and hid in the Philippines for almost a year. Ledesma said Eastwood was the subject of a no bail warrant from the US Defense Department. BI intelligence chief Faizal Hussin said Eastwood had been overstaying in the Philippines and was an undocumented alien after the US State Department revoked his passport last July 2.
Prior to 911 it was possible on occassion to get an overseas AWOL client discharged in-absentia. Now it is very hard. It is also harder to surrender from overseas by coming back to the US.
