I researched a bit and the only thing I could come up with was the Geneva Convention Article of War 107 regarding prisioners of war. It's possible that AW 107 is a reference to your grandfather being held by the enemy during an active war time period. AW refers to the Articles of War during WW2 and AW 107 was the article that gave the authority to grant an honorable discharge to a service man or woman. This article also granted authority to award the service man a lapel button with the emblem of an eagle on it. This pin was nicknamed the "ruptured duck" and the service man was allowed to wear it on his uniform for up to 30 days from the date of discharge. This gave him time to get home and get some civilian clothes. He was then authorized to wear the pin on his civilian clothes. These pins were originally made of gilded metal, but due to metal shortages, they were later made out of gilded plastic and also cloth. I 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 father 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?

A blue discharge (also known as a "blue ticket") was a form of administrative military dischargeformerly issued by the United States beginning in 1916. It was neither honorable nor dishonorable. The blue ticket became the discharge of choice for commanders seeking to remove homosexual service members from the ranks. 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.

What does 2 days lost under lapel button issued aw 107 on your fathers discharge paper?

The Lapel Button is the Honorable Discharge pin. The soldiers called it a "ruptured duck". Anything which took flight in a big hurry during the war was said to take off like a ruptured duck. Then when they saw the pins, which were not too artistic, depicting a somewhat potbellied eagle in flight, they naturally called it a ruptured duck. AW 107 is Article of War number 107. The Articles of War are the military laws which govern a soldiers conduct. AW 107 specifies that time a soldiers spends in the guardhouse or the brig, or time when he is AWOL, does not count toward his obligated time of service. This did not matter much in WWII because all soldiers were in "for the duration", until the war was won. It was mentioned on discharge papers in case the soldier returned to military service or continued in other Federal employment, because the time lost under AW 107 would not count toward the years needed for retirement. It means the soldier got in some minor difficulty while in the service, nothing serious.

What kind of punishment can a sergeant first class get under Article 92?

I'd have to know what the order he violated was and who issued it, but if the SFC violated an order from a general he can get a dishonorable discharge and prison time; an order from a non-general officer can get the SFC a bad conduct discharge and prison time. This is not a good article for a senior NCO to violate.

How long after filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy and going to court does it take to discharge?

Chapter 7Roughly, it takes 5-6 months after filing of the petition to get a discharge if it is a no-asset case. If there are assets or questions about the value of assets, it may take longer. More information:There is no court hearing in a no-asset case, and the discharge in Massachusetts is usually about 6 weeks after the 341 meeting/first meeting of creditors. The federal rule requires no-problem no-asset cases to be closed within 6 months of filing, after the filing of the certificate that the debtor(s) have taken the class in financial management.A debtor is eligible to receive Discharge 60 days after Meeting of Creditors (also called the "341 hearing"). In most jurisdictions, it is my understanding that the issuance of the Discharge is pretty much automated, so it actually gets issued around 61 days after the hearing, and you get it in the mail around 64 days after the hearing. I know this is the case in Southern Indiana, but I don't know about other jurisdictions. However, there are certain things that can hold up a Discharge, such as if there are complications in the case, or if there is an asset the trustee wants to sell, etc.I am a bankruptcy attorney in Kentucky. The discharge here gets issued on about the 61st day after your meeting of creditors in Kentucky, so long as there are no issues that arise that would prevent discharge. I believe that other states operate on pretty much the same time frame.
