COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Records show military supervisors denied long-shot South Carolina U.S. Senate nominee Alvin Greene an honorable discharge from the Air Force for mistakes ranging from a messy dorm room to inability to perform basic tasks.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reported Tuesday a five-member military review board decided in 2006 to uphold Greene's involuntary discharge.
Greene ultimately received a general discharge under honorable conditions, a step below an honorable discharge.
The Associated Press reported in July that the unemployed veteran who has called himself an "American hero" was considered a lackluster service member by his supervisors.
Greene won a surprise victory in the June 8 Democratic primary when he handily defeated a former lawmaker and judge.
