A hero in the War on Terror is being dishonored.
It’s an absolute injustice – a travesty. The U.S. Army is threatening to kick out a Green Beret war hero for defending a child. He could be ejected from the Armed Forces any day.
Sergeant First Class (SFC) Charles Martland – a Bronze Star Medal recipient – took decisive action against an Afghan soldier who admittedly raped a child. SFC Martland did what any honorable person would do and forcibly removed the admitted sexual predator from a U.S military base.
SFC Martland said, “We felt a moral obligation to act.”
But now he faces expulsion from the military at any time this month. We’re taking direct action – sending critical legal letters to the Military, Congress, and President Obama – to defend a hero who defended a child.
We have a moral obligation to act. Sign our urgent petition for Sergeant Martland now before it’s too late.
