The way it worked when I was in the Canoe Club was:During Peacetime,
Less than 30 days- generally Article 15, unless there was an
obvious proof of permanent desertion,
After 30 days;
1) If you were apprehended,
probably face a general courts-martial for desertion.
2) If you turned yourself in voluntarily,
still considered AWOL, and you faced an Article 15.
Been there, done that, 38 days, Article 15, no permanent
effect on record or discharge.
IMO,(IANAL) you are the victim of a computer glitch,
and you need to contact whoever updates the
source database, and have the recurring glitch removed...
