Suing the Army

From Holden:

I have no idea what the chances are, but I wish this fellow luck:

A decorated US combat veteran filed a lawsuit yesterday asserting that the government can not prevent reservists from leaving the military when their enlistment periods end.

The suit against Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and other military officials, names the plaintiff only as John Doe. It says he served in the Marine Corps and Army for nine years on active duty and three years as a reservist.

“This lawsuit seeks to stop the forced retention of men and women who have fulfilled their service obligations,” said attorney Michael Sorgen. “When their period of enlistment ends, they should be entitled to return to their families.”
