Sergeant Patrick & Jill Hart weave a sordid tale of faith, trust & obligation that is as baffling as it is heartbreaking. Yet their story ultimately shows the way to hope for our once honorable military establishment by simply obeying the law of the land.

This guy was a CPL when he went to kuwait, after 9 years on active duty most troops are at least an e-6, tells you a little about his history? I think this guy didn't go to I raq because he is a coward plain and simple.

Name-calling is a tactic that people with no logical argument often use... The war is immoral, it is baseless. You have every right to resist an unlawful order. This gentleman did so, and I think rightly so.

It's a shame voluntarily joining the army twice(he had a break in service) then defecting. They left debts and wrote bad checks. If Canada wants them they can have them but they need to pay off all of their debts here in America!! Their story is not exactly accurate!

Well, I hope this is posted. SGT Patrick Hart was in my platoon, and he did go awol. He was not a shining example of a good soldier, but I am glad he finally decided to do something. His job in the army wasn’t to go on the front line, he wasn’t infantry and he wasn’t likely to go off base. He was a supply tech in a Support Operations Shop in a support battalion in an aviation brigade. We went to Iraq and back and not one of the soldiers in the battalion step foot outside the air base. SGT Hart job was to fix computers for supply connectivity, and the soldiers he left to work in his shop drove gators (work atv’s) up and down the flight line and fixed computers. He wasn’t afraid of being in the Army, he simply wasn’t doing well. He failed his PT test and was overweight. He had to be told what to do on a continual basis. He was a sergeant by rank but was neither a leader nor a hard worker. I am still in the 159 Aviation Brigade, 101 Airborne Division, as is his former OIC (officer in charge). I would like to know how he is doing now. I would suspect that he is still not doing much but I hope he is holding down a job, and supporting his family. His wife was a good supporter and the Family Readiness Group leader for the company. I hope that he is able to return at least a small amount of support back to his family. Lastly I want to request that where ever he left to that he stays, we don’t need another drag on American society.
