Chaser for the NYC Guy that was AWOL 20+ Times!
In addition to the Story of the Chaser and the NYC Escapee, that may have been the same guy that I was charged with as a Chaser at MCB Twentynine Palms in the early 1970’s. The Judge at this individual’s Court Martial ordered me in the Courtroom to ensure that my weapon was loaded in front of the prisoner, with an order to shoot the SOB if he attempted to escape! I delivered him to the Base Brig. By the time I returned to the Judge Advocate Office on the hill, the guy had escaped out the back door of the brig and out across the desert, while the jail was being swabbed down!
