Attorney- Soldier discharged after bisexual claim
RALEIGH, N.C. -- A soldier who tried for more than two years to resign, claiming he is bisexual, has been discharged from the Army, according to his attorney.
The Army had turned down at least four resignation requests by Capt. David Donovan, and suggested the 17-year veteran was lying to get out of his active duty obligation.
Donovan's attorney, Todd Conormon, said that his client was granted a discharge sometime over the last few weeks. He said he didn't know exactly when Donovan was discharged or what type of discharge he received.
Maj. Steven Stover, an Army spokesman reached Thursday, said he could not confirm if or when Donovan had been discharged.
Donovan, who was based at Fort Bragg, would not comment when reached by phone Thursday in Sunrise, Fla., where he works for a computer company.
"Obviously it was a difficult ordeal, so I think he just wants to pursue his civilian career," Conormon said.
