Military Member Tried for Shirking War Duties

BLAINE, Wash. (AP) - Iraq War resistor Cliff Cornell, who fled to Canada, is returning to Fort Stewart to face a charge of being absent without leave.

His lawyer says Cornell would turn himself in Tuesday at the Army base near Savannah.

Officials say Cornell fled to Canada four years ago after his unit was ordered to Iraq.
