Army Spc. Kevin Holyan is fighting the Army for disability benefits after accidentally shooting himself in the head with his personal weapon nearly two years ago, according to his attorneys.
In April 2017, the Fort Campbell soldier was showing off his personal weapon during a fellow service member's promotion party when he made a joke about killing himself, put the gun against his head, and pulled the trigger, a news release from the Tully Rinckey law firm in Washington, D.C. says.
