U.S. Army v. E-2 (Article 112a) Wrongful Use of a Controlled Substance
This client was a great Infantry Soldier who served honorably while deployed fighting our nations wars. He wanted to go into the Special Forces. He started conducting special training to do so. Several of his peers were training for the same thing. They started taking supplements. They did not hide it. They were open with hit. Before long the Chain of Command caught wind, and our client was given an Article 15 and reduced to E-2. As with all wrongful use of controlled substances cases, Soldiers must be processed for separation. Our client was processed for separation and his Colonel directed that he be retained. Inexplicably he was separated about a month later with a General Under Honorable Conditions. Given the fact that his Colonel directed he be retained, the Discharge Review Board saw fit to upgrade his general discharge to a Honorable Discharge.
Case Result: UPGRADED TO HONORABLE DISCHARGE!
