A Colorado Springs soldier who fled to Canada rather than return to Iraq is on his way to Fort Knox to turn himself in to military authorities.
Twenty-three-year-old Kyle Snyder was a combat engineer who said he'd soured on the war, and that he was given a different job than the one he trained for after he arrived in Iraq.
He returned to the United States on Saturday.
Snyder told authorities in Louisville, Kentucky Tuesday morning that he doesn't see a lot of positive things coming from the war, and called it a "counterproductive mission."
Attorney James Fennerty of Chicago says a deal has been reached to keep Snyder from being court-martialed.
He'll receive an other-than-honorable discharge instead.
