False Identity in the US Military

Okay, here's a question for you: a female soldier in the United States Army fights in the Gulf War under an assumed name (still as a female soldier. This isn't a "pretend to be a man to go to war" story). What would be the punishment when she got caught? How long would it take for her to get caught, assuming she had a lot of money (she's an heiress for a powerful steel company and didn't want her family to find out she dropped out of college to join the Army) so she could probably get the false documents she needed to join the military in the first place fairly easily? Would the fact that her family is very wealthy and powerful and has ties in the government influence the military's decision at all, or is that an institution that's still fairly free from that sort of corruption (when it comes to matters like this)?
