Yesterday, I interviewed Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin, an elite Army Ranger and master Army aviator with some 1,000 hours of combat flying time, including 500 while using night-vision gear. Though he’s been to war and back three times, fighting both on the ground and in the air, nothing prepared the 47-year-old for the battle he’s fighting now, trying to avoid becoming a victim of the Pentagon’s sexual assault witch hunt that could send him to prison for 58 years* for something he did not do.
Major Martin’s court-martial is scheduled to begin Dec. 1 at Fort Campbell, Ky., so time is of the essence.
During the next few days and weeks at BobMcCarty.com, I plan to post stories and videos from the interview and from other sources related to Major Martin’s case. I implore you to read the upcoming stories and watch the upcoming videos and then share the details of his unbelievable tale of military injustice with your friends and family, elected officials, members of the news media and, heck, even presidential candidates. He needs an urgent groundswell of support to bring an end to this unjust and scandal-filled prosecution!
Since this article was published, the date for Major Martin’s trial was changed. This article has been updated to reflect that change.
*UPDATE: After publishing this article, I learned Army prosecutors agreed to limit any possible punishment in this case to 10 years. A sign they have a weak case?”
UPDATE 12/7/2015 at 8:32 a.m. Central: A military judge continued the military trial date for Army Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin to sometime in March 2016, though no specific date has been set.
UPDATE 12/10/2015 at 11:20 a.m. Central: I’ve learned that Major Martin’s military trial date is set for March 14-18, 2016.
