Easy Out for Parents

The Army has a long standing policy of requiring parents to file a dependent care plan for their kids in the event of deployment. If a parent does not provide a depended care plan and they are given deployment orders, the Army is faced with a decision, deploy the parent and assume responsibility/liability for the dependents or discharge the service member. As far as I can tell the Army has never done anything other than discharge the service member. It makes perfect sense. Can you imagine how many law suits would be pending against a military that essentially took children away from their parents and then bad things happened to the dependents?
