Has DoD’s War on Men Claimed Another Victim?

Though I’m not yet at liberty to disclose the name of a U.S. Army Soldier who appears to have become yet another victim of the Department of Defense War on Men, I feel compelled to share troubling details about his recent conviction on sexual assault charges that were shared with me by his father during a phone call today.

In short, the father told me he had received signed letters from two members of the five-member court-martial panel — the military version of a jury — who had sat in judgment over his son during legal proceedings last year. In their letters, both panel members described how they had voted against convicting the man’s son. In addition, both described having been pressured to render a guilty convict by Army officials who wanted to make an example of the accused Soldier so as to discourage other Soldiers from committing sexual assaults in the future.

The father told me he will forward copies of those letters to me for dissemination to my readers if his son’s defense attorney thinks it a good idea during a time when they are moving forward with the appeals process. In other words, no guarantees. Stay tuned!

Bob’s first published book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice (October 2011), chronicles the life story and wrongful conviction of Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, a highly-decorated Green Beret combat veteran. In his second book, THE CLAPPER MEMO (May 2013), Bob connects the dots between a memo signed by James R. Clapper Jr. — the man now serving as our nation’s top intelligence official — and the deaths of dozens of Americans in Afghanistan at the hands of our so-called Afghan “allies” wearing the uniforms of their nation’s military, police and security forces.
