    Republicans are anxious to unseat former vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine from his Virginia Senate seat in November, and top conservatives in the upper chamber have been quick to throw their support behind Del. Nick Freitas in his quest to secure the GOP nomination. Just weeks after announcing his bid, Freitas — a libertarian-leaning Republican, former Green Beret and father of three — has already managed to lock down the endorsement of Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and receive campaign guidance from Utah Sen. Mike Lee after touting his legislative record and dedication to upholding the Constitution. “Being able to get...

    Naval Criminal Investigative Service spokesman Ed Buice confirmed to CNN last month that the NCIS was investigating whether two members of the Navy’s elite SEAL Team Six killed Army Staff Sgt. Logan J. Melgar. The New York Times was the first to report that the SEALs were under investigation for Melgar’s death at a US government compound near the American embassy in Bamako, the capital. Melgar was a Special Forces Engineer Sergeant, according to a statement from the US Army Special Command. Military officials told CNN that a military examiner ruled Melgar’s death while on assignment in the African nation of...
  • 2 Navy SEALs under suspicion in strangling of Green Beret in Mali

    No one has been charged in Sergeant Melgar’s death, which a military medical examiner ruled to be “a homicide by asphyxiation,” or strangulation, said three military officials briefed on the autopsy results. The two Navy SEALs, who have not been identified, were flown out of Mali shortly after the episode and were placed on administrative leave. The biggest unanswered question is why Sergeant Melgar was killed. “N.C.I.S. does not discuss the details of ongoing investigations,” Ed Buice, the agency’s spokesman, said in an email, confirming that his service had taken over the case on Sept. 25. Neither the Army nor...

    Special Forces veteran Dr. Mike Simpson isn’t impressed by the way the Niger incident is being exploited by liberals like Congresswoman Frederica Wilson as a cheap way of attacking Donald Trump. Simpson’s thoughts on Niger are attracting a lot of attention on Twitter. Here’s what this ex-Green Beret has to say about his fallen comrades: Liberals: I am going to speak for all veterans for just a moment. (1) We didn't enlist because we were poor, stupid, and lacked opportunities. . . (more at link)

    (Angry Patriot) – The U.S. special forces are the most feared military unit in the world for a reason, and we couldn’t be more proud of them. A soldier from the Peruvian Special Forces challenged a United States Green Beret to a fight when he was visiting Peru. The Peruvian never stood a chance. “He did it with just one finger? … With just one hand he put his a** out!” cried out onlookers in wonder. The Green Beret did not hesitate, and the fight was over in an instant. U.S. Special Forces, including the Green Berets, do not rely...

    RALEIGH, N.C. (KTRK) -- They are the sniffles heard around the world. When Lisa Williams' plane arrived at Raleigh-Durham Airport, passengers were asked to wait to let someone off the plane first. When she looked out the window, there were several soldiers unloading a flag-draped coffin from the cargo hold. For minutes, the plane remained silent, aside from the sniffles coming from the passengers. A woman walked over and placed her hand on the casket to say her final goodbyes, and others -- presumably family members -- joined her. Then, seven Green Beret soldiers dressed in full uniform carried the...

    A North Carolina judge sentenced a Green Beret veteran to spend a night in jail. But when he remembered his own story and all he had gone through, he couldn't just let him spend the night alone. Judge Lou Olivera, a Gulf War veteran, is a district court judge over the Veterans Treatment Court in Cumberland County, North Carolina. He had to sentence Green Beret Joe Serna to one night in jail for a probation violation. Serna, a recipient of three Purple Hearts, is retired from the military and is having a hard time adjusting back to life after experiencing...

    Donald Trump fired back Tuesday at reports questioning his fundraising haul from a high-profile veterans event in January, releasing an extensive list of charities he said received the donations -- and slamming the media for questioning him. During a press conference at Trump Tower, the presumptive Republican nominee said he's raised $5.6 million and more is coming in. He rattled off the list of charities and the amounts they received, while taking scathing and sometimes-personal shots at the media for pressuring him to disclose the information. “I have never received such bad publicity for doing such a good job,” Trump...
  • Major Victory: Sergeant First Class Martland Exonerated, Will Remain in Military

    It’s a massive victory more than six months in the making. Sergeant First Class Charles Martland – a decorated war hero who faced expulsion from the Army for defending a child – has been exonerated and will be allowed to remain in the U.S. military. We have been aggressively advocating for SFC Martland for more than six months, and now we’ve helped achieve a significant victory for this Green Beret war hero. SFC Martland faced expulsion from the Army for defending a child from sexual abuse and confronting an admitted sexual predator in Afghanistan. The ACLJ argued that his actions...

The American trained Rahman was said to be practicing the ancient Afghan act of “Bacha Bazi.” Rahman beat...

    The Army on Thursday announced its decision to retain Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland, who was ordered discharged last year after he roughed up a local Afghan police commander for repeatedly raping a little boy and then beating his mother. Outrage against the Army’s actions rightfully ensued after the incident, since the Green Beret had served honorably for more than 11 years and most would argue that taking a stand against a child rapist was the right thing to do, morally speaking.

    In a stunning reversal, the U.S. Army decided late Thursday to retain a decorated Green Beret it had planned to kick out after he physically confronted a local Afghan commander accused of raping a boy over the course of many days. *snip* "In SFC Martland’s case, the Army Board for Correction of Military Records determination modified a portion of one of SFC Martland’s evaluation reports and removed him from the QMP list, which will allow him to remain in the Army," said Lt. Col. Jerry Pionk.

    The U.S. Army has postponed the planned discharge of an 11-year Green Beret who confronted an alleged child rapist in Afghanistan in order to give him a chance to appeal. An army spokesman said Tuesday that Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland will be given 60 days to file an appeal with the Army Board for the Correction of Military Records. “While the material in Sgt. Martland's file required that he be considered by the QMP (Qualitative Management Program) board, it is our desire to ensure every soldier receives fairness and due process and we continue to act accordingly,” the spokesman...

    We recently learned that Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland had his appeal denied by the Army as he seeks to prevent his forced discharge from the service. The chain of events stems from his participation in the beating of a pedophile Afghan local police official who had chained a local boy to his bed and repeatedly raped him. (I’m skipping the “alleged” here since the official confessed to holding the boy captive.) Now, with the date of his discharge rapidly approaching, Martland has found an ally in one California congressman and is taking his side of the story public....

    Rep. Vern Buchanan (R., Fla.) is demanding that the decorated Green Beret who blew the whistle on U.S.-allied Afghan forces raping boys be reinstated by the Army immediately. Buchanan labeled war hero Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland’s dismissal from the force a “national disgrace.” Martland stood up for an Afghan rape victim in 2011. “Driving Sgt. Martland out of the Army is a national disgrace,” Buchanan said in a statement. “He stood up for American values and should be commended, not punished.” This week, reports surfaced that U.S. soldiers and Marines have been instructed to ignore suspicions of Afghan forces...

    Benavidez had a total of 37 separate bullet, bayonet, and shrapnel wounds from the six hour fight with the enemy battalion. He was evacuated to the base camp, examined, and thought to be dead. He couldn’t open his eyes because of the amount of blood that had dried over them. He couldn’t talk, because he had been hit in the mouth with a rifle butt and his jaws were locked. As he was being placed in a body bag among the other dead, he was suddenly recognized by a friend who called for help. A doctor came and examined him...
