“According to sources in the U.S. Army, Page enlisted in April 1992 and was discharged from the Army in 1998 “under honorable conditions,” which is less than honorable discharge. While not as negative as a dishonorable discharge, such a release would preclude one from reenlisting or entering another military service,” reports Fox News.
USA Today: “The man who fatally shot six people at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin was identified today as Army veteran Wade Michael Page, 40, who washed out of the military in 1998 after a six-year hitch.
“The Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that has studied hate crimes for decades, says on its website that Page was a frustrated neo-Nazi who had been the leader of a racist white-power band known as End Apathy.
“[...] Page enlisted in April 1992 and was given a less-than-honorable discharge in October 1998. CBS reports that Page served at Fort Bliss, Texas, in the psychological operations unit in 1994, and was last stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C., attached to the psychological operations there.
“The Associated Press reports that such specialists are responsible for the analysis, development and distribution of intelligence used for influencing foreign populations.
“The New York Post reports that Page was a Hawk missile system repair specialist before moving on to psychological operations.
“The details of his discharge were not immediately clear, although CNN says a military source cites “patterns of misconduct.”
“The Journal Sentinel reports that Page apparently worked as a truck driver with Granger, Iowa-based Barr-Nunn Transportation, from about April 2006 to August 2010 while living in Fayetteville, N.C.
“An employee at the company told the newspaper that Page left “involuntarily”" but declined to elaborate.”
