MSG Hasenbein, a U.S. Army Special Forces Green Beret, is being charged with assaulting a roleplayer employed by F3EA during a training exercise. Master Hasenbein’s attorney has filed a Defense Motion to Dismiss his court-martial for Unlawful Command Influence (UCI) and moves that the court dismiss all charges and specifications with prejudice.

The charges against Hasenbein stem from a training exercise that took place at Fort Knox on March 22nd, 2019. MSG E and SFC B were both present during the exercise in question. Not only were they eyewitnesses to MSG Hasenbein’s conduct, but both were involved in handling the complaining roleplayer witness during the training. It is undisputed and was reported by multiple witnesses that if a roleplayer was uncomfortable with anything going on, they would use the safe word “real world,” three times. The safe word was never uttered by the roleplayer although he was asked by multiple senior NCOs if he wanted to use it.
