"A Long Way Home." Story of a US deserter.
6 months ago

A US Deserter from the Vietnam War turns up in New Zealand years later.

If you have the time to read this Dateline NBC transcript please do so as it's really incredible. I watched it on TV several years ago.

With recent events, and Bowe Bergdahl in mind, how does a nation go about proving one actually deserted? The "Chato Defense" makes it essentially impossible to "prove" anyone ever deserts.

30,000 days is all I ask.
