Republic of Korea soldier goes AWOL to watch “Avengers: Endgame”

A soldier went AWOL (absent from where one should be but without intent to desert) to watch Avengers: Endgame.

18 soldiers with the Republic of Korea Air Force 20th Fighter Wing left their base for public service duty. One of them failed to heed the call to assemble and was found in a movie theater, WowTV reports.

He was tracked down by military police after they questioned a taxi cab driver who admitted to dropping off a soldier at a movie theater. The soldier was arrested as he left the theater.

“I wanted to see the Avengers movie so I ran away from the site while we were standing by,” he said
