AWOL Acronym: What Does it Mean?

I just read about an AWOL army private who had purchased ammunition in preparation for an attack.
What does the acronym AWOL mean? I know it is somehow related to the military but I've been reading it all over the news and there's no mention of the acronym meaning.
Is it some sort of government secret acronym?

The definition of AWOL is "Absent Without Leave."
The acronym references a soldier or other military person who is absent from duty without leave.
AWOL is a term used by the FDA (Federal Drug Administration.)
But I've also seen the term used in other areas. Hope my answer helped you.
