Hopefully someone else will contribute to this, but I am pretty sure this means that your Old Man, took alittle detour and went AWOL (Absent With Out Leave), as in he didn't report for duty as ordered. He took a few more days off, and then slinked back on post with tail between his legs (No big deal, hell, you ain't never been in the military lessen ya gots one good AWOL story.) Any way, the military doesn't take kindly to you doing this, and ya's usually end up with some kind of marker. For example, he marines put a red stripe on you if your overweight.I imagine your pop got to wear a similar marker in the form of a button. It tells everyone youv'e been a really bad boy! Anyway, you eventually don't have to wear the stupid thing and that's that, lessen a few bucks and maybe a stripe or two. Of course it goes on your service record. His punishment consisted of having to wear the stupid button, for an unknown period of time, and he got 42 days of pay taken away, which doen't mean he was gone 42 days without leave, just that it cost him that much pay! Under the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) being away from, or failing to show up for duty at the perscribed time will result in a charge of AWOL, which turns into desertion after 30 days, I think? Anyway, the US Military doesn't care what your excuse is, your still AWOL, got it! You could be in a jail cell someplace, and when you get released, guess what, the MP's then take you to their jail; Sweet! Ha Ha!Yep, always leave it the the Armed Forces to show a good time. All part of the learning experience of life, where we like to cure you the old fashioned way!Hope this helps, and of course there is a story to this, worm it out of him is he is still around to tell you. Heck, with time, these things are the episodes of that military experience which make you an old salted veteran. Wear them with pride, you bought and paid for them! That's what most veterans will tell you.

AnswerI can't believe how many web pages contain "Articles of War". I quickly found the original British version from 1749 and US version of 1806, but Article 107 was a much later addition.

"ART. 107. SOLDIERS TO MAKE GOOD TIME LOST.Every soldier who deserts the service of the United States, or who without proper authority absents himself from his organization, station, or duty for more than one day, or who is confined for more than one day under sentence, or while awaiting trial and disposition of his case, if the trial results in conviction, or who through the intemperate use of drugs or alcoholic liquor, or through disease the result of his own misconduct, renders himself unable for more than one day to perform duty shall be liable to serve, after his return to a full duty status, for such period as shall, with the time he may have served prior to such desertion, unauthorized absence, confinement, or inability to perform duty, amount to the full term to his enlistment."

So, if your grandpa wasn't court-martialed (which would certainly be noted in his discharge papers), he probably partied a bit too much and over-stayed his leave or came back too drunk for duty.

Can you be held on parole because you caught a new case after the discharge date?

If you failed to report and a warrant was issued before your discharge date for not reporting then yes. If you were arrested on a new charge that is prosecuted before your discharge date then I am pretty sure the parole hold would need cancelled on your discharge date. If you were discharged then "caught a new case" it would not be a parole violation because you would no longer be on parole.

What is a World War 1 military discharge called MO?

They were also issued disproportionately to African Americans.Service members holding a blue discharge were subjected to discrimination in civilian life. They were denied the benefits of the G.I. Bill by the Veterans Administrationand had difficulty finding work because employers were aware of the negative connotations of a blue discharge. Following intense criticism in the press - especially the black press, because of the high percentage of African Americans who received blue discharges - and in Congress, the blue discharge was discontinued in 1947, replaced by two new classifications: general and undesirable.
