Defend a Hero; Stop Child Sexual Abuse





Defend a War Hero; Stop Child Sexual Abuse

It’s shameful and despicable.

The U.S. Army is threatening to kick out a Green Beret war hero for defending a child from rape.

What’s worse are reports that the military has allowed Afghanistan forces to sexually abuse young children on U.S. bases.

Children – young boys and girls – are being raped and abused, and Sergeant Charles Martland said, “We felt a moral obligation to act.”

For his action, he faces expulsion from the Army.

As his case is reviewed, we’re sending a critical legal letter to the Secretary of Defense demanding direct action to stop this moral outrage and reinstate the brave Green Beret who exposed it. Add your voice now.

To the Secretary of Defense & Secretary of the Army:
