Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)
August 25, 2019
Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, TN.
Cadet (CDT) was accused of “undesirable character” when his girlfriend filed a restraining order against him. The Professor of Military Science (PMS) initiated a disenrollment board in order to remove the CDT from the program and either require him to pay back all of his tuition (thousands of dollars) or enlist into the Regular Army for four years. CDT retains Mickey Williams who begins investigating the case and developing a strategy to combat the disenrollment board. Mr. Williams discovers that the girlfriend was in a romantic relationship with the CDT and was lying to her parents about it who did not want her to date the CDT. The girlfriend’s father is also a Major in the Army who was good friends with the PMS. It was clear that the Major wanted the PMS to punish the CDT for dating his daughter against his wishes. At the board, the PMS submitted various anonymous statements about the CDT that tried to paint the CDT as a horrible Soldier and human being. Mr. Williams, anticipating this tactic, gathered nearly twenty (20) other character statements for the CDT that completely contradicted the PMS’ statements. Mr. Williams also provided substantial evidence that proved that the PMS was acting out of spite and that the girlfriend was lying to her parents and law enforcement about the CDT.
CDT RETAINED in ROTC, allowed to continue to Advance Camp and Commission into the United States Army
