Another reason not to travel by air

Chris Parks, Mistaken For Military Deserter, Wrongly Accused By Army - ABC News: "'The customs officials put an X on my forms and asked me to stand to the side. I thought it was a routine search,' said Parks. But Parks told ABCNews.com that he quickly learned there was nothing routine about what was happening to him when Homeland Security told him that he was going to be held in custody.

'The official told me that it appears I've deserted the Army and at that point I still don't even know what he's talking about,' said Parks. 'I thought it had to be a joke or a big mix-up.'"
