Another hero is being ejected from the military for doing what is right.
Major Jason Brezler – a Marine – sent a dire warning to fellow soldiers in Afghanistan about a corrupt Afghan police chief who was sexually enslaving young children.
It’s called “bacha bazi” – “boy play” – and terrorists are now using these tormented boys to attack our soldiers.
His urgent warning of an impending attack came true; but because he sent it using his personal email, he was involuntarily discharged from the military. It’s shameful.
Just like Sergeant Charles Martland – who we helped reinstate after he faced expulsion for defending an Afghan boy from sexual abuse – this Marine is one of the few, the proud, who stood up for what was right.
We’re aggressively fighting to reinstate Major Brezler – now a New York City firefighter. We’re working with Members of Congress and sending critical legal letters. Take action now:
To: Congress and Senior Military Officials
The sexual torture of young boys must end. Our soldiers must be protected. Major Brezler must be reinstated.
As we aggressively fight to defend war heroes from discharge for protecting children, we urgently need your support. Chip in today.
