The Killeen Police Department arrested Nasser near Fort Hood, as he had been AWOL since the US Independence Day. His past record in the US Army has also been full of ups and downs. He served the US Army for a year and then he was all set to be deployed to Afghanistan, a fact that he wasn’t too happy about. So prior to leaving for Afghanistan, he applied for a conscientious objector status. He wasn’t too happy when his request was turned down by his bosses but later the Army review board thought otherwise of the denial.
