Maj. Matt Golsteyn, a decorated Fort Bragg Green Beret, knew he violated the law of armed conflict when he fatally shot an unarmed Afghan man in Marjah, Afghanistan, in 2010, according to Army officials pushing to remove him from service.
Capts. Jason McKenna and Catherine Godfrey, recorders who presented the Army's case during a Board of Inquiry hearing, said Golsteyn should be separated from the Army under a less-than-honorable discharge.
The three-member board must review the allegations against Golsteyn to determine if they are substantiated, then decide if he should be retained or removed from service.
