Soldier Punished for Defending Himself
Updated: Feb 18, 2019
Allan Moser was discharged for striking an enemy terrorist who bit him. Maher Legal services was there for him.
Moser v. Secretary of the Army is an appeal before the Army Discharge Review Board.
Specialist Moser served with distinction in the 1-506 Infantry, 101st Airborne Division during many combat engagements.
However, because he struck an enemy terrorist who bit him, Moser was administratively separated with a General Discharge and not authorized to re-enlist.
The Army involuntarily discharged him, not only in the face of a distinguished combat record and high praise from fellow Soldiers with whom he served under fire, but also on his ETS date, which means that his discharge by law must be Honorable.
