I've heard that if I go AWOL and wait 30 days, then I can turn myself in and get a quick discharge. Is that true?

It’s not easy to say what is true about going AWOL (and UA) in general, because each case depends on a number of factors and the situation keeps changing, but it is easy to say that what you’ve heard is in general not true. Our counselors keep up with the latest information about the consequences of going AWOL (and UA). Call the GI Rights Hotline to find out the facts.
