Suspected Gunman Discharged from Army

Wade Michael Page, the suspected gunman who went on a shooting rampage that killed six at a Sikh temple, had been administratively discharged from the U.S. Army in 1998. He had previously been demoted in rank from sergeant to specialist. Page served six and a half years in the service as a missile system repairman and a psychological operations specialist before being discharged. The military has kept quiet on why he didn't qualify for honorable discharge and what led to Page being stripped of his rank. His record also had praise and medals for good conduct, humanitarian service and other basic achievements.
