Skip to comments.Decision Imminent for Green Beret Who Confronted Afghan Child Rapist [Luke 17]

A decision is imminent regarding whether Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland will be kicked out of the Army for confronting an Afghan child rapist while serving in Afghanistan in 2011. Martland, a decorated Green Beret, was reprimanded by the Army after he retaliated against an Afghan police commander at an outpost for repeatedly raping a young boy. Martland and another soldier confronted the commander, reportedly throwing him to the ground and causing him to leave the base. The Army Human Resources Command recently recommended that Martland be kicked out of the service, but an official decision from the Army is expected by March 1. Some Republican members of Congress, notably former Marine officer Rep. Duncan Hunter (R., Calif.), have advocated on Martland's behalf, arguing that he should be allowed to continue his service. Martland has spent 11 years in the U.S. special forces.
"Charles did the right thing in Afghanistan by standing up to a child rapist and corrupt commander, and now it's the Army's turn to do the right thing and reverse the decision to expel him from the service," Hunter told Fox News. "Permitting Charles to continue serving is in the best interest of the Army and the nation." Martland faced a Qualitative Management Program review board last February, and the Army argued then that his actions warranted his discharge from the service. He appealed the decision, which was denied outright. Martland was allowed to resubmit an appeal, and a decision has been delayed until now...

Luke 17:1 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come : but woe unto him, through whom they come! 2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
Now let me ask a simple question to the idiots on the board. If your son were being raped and you could not intervene would you want A special forces soldier to aid your child or would you want him to stand down and allow YOUR child to be raped? I do believe there is a thing about liberating the oppressed ,isn’t there?
What is the punishment for allowing an Ambassador and others to be killed?
Or gun-running that results in the death of a border agent.
Make no mistake it is 0bama who is doing this; he controls those commanders which are left and he hasn’t terminated. They are useful tools.
I’m wondering who the idiots are that you’re referring to?
Sounds like libs you’re referring to.
We have a poster who insists Islam is just grand.
Not at all violent, no.. He says so.
Pinging him to see this thread, doubt he will understand.
The man stopped an ongoing warcrime perpetrated against a child civilian. The courts martial should be aimed at the whoresons in the chain of command who are persecuting this soldier for upholding an AMERICAN standard of behavior during time of war.
Lord please come to the aid of this man, your servant, who fends off demons from young children.
Homosexual rape epidemic in the military? So that’s what the Left was up to.
This needs to be spread far and wide! I just posted it on my facebook.
This is an American hero, who was true to the motto, “De Oppresso Liber,” and has my full support.
He was castigated by a bunch of Rear Echelon you know whets (and as a Christian who wants to avoid profanity I will just call them pukes).
But he did what was right...and what should have been done...and probably had to hold back to let that animal off as easy as he got.
The fact is...whether it is a US soldier, a supposed ally, or anyone else...anyone raping young boys is evil and evil must be stood against.
God bless you Sergeant Martland...and may He keep and protect you, irrespective of what these appointees and PC bootlickers do or say.
God in Heaven will turn all of this to your good...He ultimately always does. We just have to have the faith and patience to see it come about.
Yeah, this is multiculturalism at it’s finest, protect the culture and let little children get tortured while treating an American soldier as inferior to some foreign child rapist.
The US Government’s hatred of Christianity is on full display. In this latest offense, by punishing US Armed Services personnel who protect children, the US Military is tacitly approving of pedophilia and pederasty.
Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland deserves a medal not persecution.
bump for later
Keep us posted...
Sorry I am late, I am referring to the board that thinks the SF soldier did something wrong...
I didn’t see that board.
Some folks are hopeless!
