An Army hearing officer has recommended a court-martial for a soldier charged with desertion after he refused to deploy to Iraq.

In a Feb. 16 report just released, Lt. Col. Linda Taylor recommended that Sgt. Kevin Benderman face a general court-martial, the most serious type. The procedure requires approval from Ft. Stewart's General Court-Martial Convening Authority.

Benderman, 40, an Army mechanic, refused to accompany his unit Jan. 7 for a second tour in Iraq, 10 days after he gave notice that he was seeking a discharge as a conscientious objector. He said he became opposed to war after serving in 2003. He is charged with desertion and missing movement.

Meeting Place has entered into contract with Google to try out a program called Ad Sense. We'll see how it goes. You will be able to use a search bar on my blog as another link to the web. This seems interesting, but I imagine that I'll still have much work to do to bring eyes to this our web log site.

It's been a long day. I subb'd for a vocational studies teacher. Many of these teens I had not met before. Will tell you about it tomorrow. Good night.

Off to read National Geographic. There's an article on what lies beneath the seas of Ireland's coasts.
