A transgender woman named Elizabeth Tremblay, who deserted the Marines 31 years ago when she was Pvt. Donald Tremblay, learned today she will get a discharge "with honorable conditions." The Lewiston-Auburn Sun Journal reports local authorities in Maine arrested Tremblay in September 2012 on the Marine Corps desertion charges. She was briefly held at the Androscoggin County Jail. Ever since her release, Tremblay has been waiting at her home in Maine to learn if she would face additional time behind bars. Tremblay, 57, attended boot camp at MCRD San Diego and was based at Twentynine Palms in the early 1980s.
