Soldier due at Fort Wood goes AWOL again to avoid return to Iraq

A U.S. Army soldier who fled to Canada rather than return to his unit at Fort Leonard Wood and go back to Iraq has disappeared again, this time just a day after surrendering to the military.
Pvt. Kyle Snyder, 23, of Colorado Springs, Colo., told The Associated Press he was supposed to return by bus to the Missouri Army post from Louisville, Ky., on Tuesday but didn’t go. He said he went AWOL after Fort Knox officials told him he would be sent back to his unit, the 94th Engineer Battalion.
Snyder returned to the United States on Saturday, after his lawyer said he had reached a deal for Snyder to receive an other-than-honorable discharge. Being sent back to his unit wasn’t part of the deal, according to attorney James Fennerty. Full story.
