(Reuters) - A U.S. Air Force deserter who has lived secretly in Sweden since 1984 has revealed his identity and contacted his family in the United States who were overwhelmed to hear he was still alive, a Swedish newspaper reported at the weekend.
Dagens Nyheter said David Hemler had deserted aged 21 while serving at a U.S. Air Force base in Germany, after getting involved with a pacifist church and becoming disillusioned with the policies of former President Ronald Reagan.

Guess he figured that the current administration is too weak to bring him to justice.
It sounds like the boy is a loser. Probably coming out now so Barry can give him the U.S. Medal of Freedom before we throw Barry’s ass out in November.
Book ‘em Dan-o
Past the statute of limitations?
Dude wants attention.
Reagan WON the Cold War & saved Western civilzation, but this punk knew better.
Or pardon him.
Maybe his kids joined the Tea Party, that or it is okay for queers to serve now and he wants to go back in
He can keep his sorry ass over there as far as I’m concerned!!
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Send an armed drone over to greet him!
This guy still doesn't get it, does he?
He had to have made a deal with the Swedish government first ~ they’ve been known to toss deserters out.
No statute of limitations on desertion.
I wonder what he told the Soviets on his journey to Sweden and where did he get help with his stay and how did he get a government job in Sweden?...
I say the little turncoat bastard was probably compromised and rolled by a KGB agent, and now wants to whimp out by blaming Reagan. He took an oath to defend the COTUS, and he’s guilty of breaking it. Lucky for HIM, the POTUS now polluting the Executive branch is more of a lowlife than HE is, so he can come forward now and may even get a medal for what he did.
Do I sound like I’m pi$$ed? Well, I am! First of all, this whimpy little bastard had a cushy job and held a security clearance in the Air Force. The reason I know that is because I had a similar gig in the Army.
But the thing that ices it with me is that while be was hiding out all those years, a lot of good men were wounded and/or died while being true to the exact same oath this little snake reneged on!
Leavenworth, at a MINIMUM! (If it were up to me!)
I hope his old uniforms still fit, otherwise he’s gonna have to pay for new ones.
Hang this mofo
