Don’t Worry, You Won’t Have to Jump On A Grenade

A couple of days ago, I began reading The Insider Threat by Brad Taylor. Early on in that thriller, I came across a paragraph that made me think of a life-and-death topic about which I’ve written many articles in recent weeks.

The paragraph, borrowed from page 141 of the hardcover version of the book, appears below:

Crusty old warriors in the Army tell a story that there are plenty who would jump on a grenade in a valiant act of heroism in battle, but very few who would sacrifice their careers for what they knew was right. And I was disturbed to learn I was now falling out of that very few.

Are you one of those who would jump on a grenade, but are not wiling to risk something much bigger and longer-lasting even though you know you should?

While you’re thinking about your answer to that question, please read this article about a man who stands accused of horrendous crimes he did not commit. Read about a man only weeks away from facing a military trial. Read about a man who could be sentenced to 58 years* in prison if found guilty of those crimes he did not commit.

After you read the article, I hope you will, at least figuratively, “jump on the grenade” that is the threat to this man’s life and freedom.

I hope you’ll contact the officials listed at the end of the article and let them know you want genuine justice for this man instead of the politically-correct “witch hunt justice” being served up by his superiors who are under political pressure to convict, regardless of whether or not he is innocent.

Thanks in advance for taking action on behalf of this man.

*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?”

Accused Fort Campbell Soldiers Up Against Sexual Offense Conviction Rate 16.5 Percent Higher Than Army Average

Thanks to experience, equipment and training, American Soldiers have an advantage over their enemies when it comes time to fight a war. When it comes to fighting sexual offense charges, however, some Soldiers are at a distinct disadvantage. Why? Because they find themselves stationed at Fort Campbell, Ky., where, during the first six months of 2015, prosecutors at the home of the vaunted 101st Airborne Division logged a conviction rate 16.5 percent higher than the Army average in cases that went to trial and involved at least one allegation of a sexual offense.

This chart lists Army outcomes of cases involving charges of a sexual nature between Jan. 1-June 20, 2015.

This chart lists Army outcomes of cases involving charges of a sexual nature between Jan. 1-June 20, 2015.

From Jan. 1-June 30, 2015, according to Army statistics republished in Army Times and Military Times but seemingly impossible to find on the Army website, Fort Campbell prosecutors had a conviction rate of 88.8 percent when prosecuting cases that went to trial and involved at least one allegation of a sexual offense. During the same time period, Army prosecutors worldwide garnered convictions in only 72.3 percent of similar cases.

Though I thought about asking a civilian defense attorney who represents Soldiers at Fort Campbell if the huge difference in conviction rates might form a solid basis for a Soldier to appeal his conviction on this types of charge, I decided doing so might be a waste of my time. After all, any good defense attorney is going to say it would. At the same time, he would remain up against a formidable military justice machine that’s under political pressure from liberal politicos and war-on-women activists hungry to apply their brand of political correctness to — and thereby weaken — our nation’s military.

Most likely to be hurt by this huge disparity in military justice outcomes are people like Army Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin, a 29-year military veteran who stands accused of bogus sexual assault allegations and is set to go on trial Dec. 1 at Fort Campbell. To learn more about his case, read these articles.

UPDATE 12/7/2015 at 8:19 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 11:13 a.m. Central: I’ve learned that Major Martin’s military trial date is set for March 14-18, 2016.

Soldier Targeted by Pentagon Witch Hunt (Video Clip 11)

While they worked to mount a defense against the unsubstantiated sexual assault charges made against Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin by the woman he had always considered his second wife, private investigators discovered something in her past. In the video clip below, the major reveals what his investigators found that prompted officials in two states to file their own charges against the woman. In addition, he reveals what Army investigators did in response.

The findings highlighted in the video above, accompanied by many more, will be part of Major Martin’s defense when he goes on trial Dec. 1 to face bogus sexual assault charges inside a military courtroom at Fort Campbell. If convicted, he faces the very real possibility of spending 58 years behind bars.

I encourage you to read the extremely-troubling long-version of his story which contains more details about this political correctness-driven case of military injustice. Afterward, please share it far and wide. Let your voice be heard in opposition to this, the latest example of the Pentagon’s politically-correct sexual assault witch hunt ruining lives.

FYI: Stay tuned for updates as they surface!

Soldier Targeted by Pentagon Witch Hunt (Video Clip 5)

Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin went to war three times and lived to tell about it. In this video clip, however, he describes the beginning of another kind of battle he’s fighting, this time with the woman he thought was his legal wife. It’s a battle that reached the boiling point soon after he was assigned to the vaunted 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Ky.

The end of this battle will be coming to a head soon as Major Martin, 47, is scheduled to stand trial on bogus sexual assault charges inside a military courtroom at Fort Campbell, Ky., Dec. 1. If convicted, the Army Ranger and master Army aviator faces the possibility of spending 58 years behind bars.

Soldier Targeted by Pentagon Witch Hunt (Video Clip 4)

Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin and his first wife divorced amicably, and he maintains good relationships with her — now remarried — and their three children. After the divorce, he met a woman online. In the video clip below, he tells me about the early days of his relationship with her, the woman who would later accuse him of horrendous crimes.

Major Martin, 47, eventually married the woman he met online. Now, he’s scheduled to stand trial on bogus sexual assault charges inside a military courtroom at Fort Campbell, Ky., Dec. 1. If convicted, the Army Ranger and master Army aviator faces the possibility of spending 58 years behind bars.
