Anthony Famulary, who heads the Utah Tech veterans program and offers counseling and" aid" to all veterans in the area, said in hisopinionthe AWOL veteran should clear his record and regain his rights in society through complying with the clemency program."I am not referring, said the veterans official, 'to draft-evaders or deserters who are still fugitives, but to veterans who must live today with a bad discharge on their record. "During the Vietnam era of August 4, 1964, through March 28, 1973, over 100,000 veterans received undesirable, bad conduct, or dishonorable discharges because of AWOL orAWOL-re.-lated offenses, said Mr. Famulary. "These may clear their record by receiving a presidential pardon if they comply with the clemency program. "If they submit to the clemency program and do alternate service which can range up to 24 months but usually is three Plon Early For fJen?

Some may be given immediate unconditional pardons. "A veteran with a bad discharge has nothing to lose by inquiring into the possibility of clemency under the program. If a veteran has a felony-court martial conviction for the AWOL offenses, a presidential pardon under the clemency program will restore his civil rights. It will restore his full rights as a citizen when seeking employment, credit, housing, or other opportunities."An application to the Clemency Board does not impair any existing right to review a bad discharge. A veteran can maintain other review petitions and still seek relief from the Presidential Clemency Foard. A veteran can decline the Presidential offer of clemency if his other appeals are successful or if he decided not to do alternate service." Famulary said a veteran may call the PresidentialClem-ency Office direct, using the number 202-456-2110, or he (or she) may contact the Utah Tech veterans office and the veterans director will be able to give full advice on the matter. year should make arrangements to have theirapartmeitsheldwhen they return by putting a deposit on them.
