When the victim in this narrative readily admits she left a club where she and this soldier were having a good time to go with him to his hotel. Her stated reason for going with him was, her words, "to have a one-night stand of sex." There was nothing in Army Special Forces Sergeant First Class Kelly A. Stewart's past history to even hint he would likely do the things this young woman charged.
I hope many of you will read this report and add your testimony to those of us who are not convinced of the Sgt.'s guilt. He put his life on the line again and again for his country, for his fellow warriors and served in one of the hottest war zones where he was under constant threats from flying bullets and roadside bombs only to be let down by the very system that called him into service. A ghastly shame greater than the charges of evil brought by this young woman.
Sgt. Stewart was an amazing soldier and he served his country with honor and repeated bravery for which he was decorated. He had many fellow warriors to testify to his character. His father was a military man of honor and never doubted his son. The Sgt.'s one mistake, which he never attempted to hide, was cheat this one time on his wife and go to that motel with this woman for the purpose of sex.Read more ›
I suggest that upon receipt of the book , you line up snacks and a cooler filled with adult beverage for a good several hours stay in your favorite chair.
It is beyond criminal that anyone, much less one of our heroes, can be convicted on what amounts to no evidence. There are no witnesses, no forensics, not even what most would call circumstantial evidence.
To hear a bit of why the author and his readers find such passion in the subject matter of "Three Days in August" listen to our discussion at [...]

I felt then, and I feel now, a great sense of compassion for ALL our military personnel. All the grunts, sailors and marines, serving for us. That same respect does not necessarily apply to "the Brass." The higher ranking officers, and sometimes NCOs. Most of the ones I met over 40 years ago, could care less about the average soldier. "Three Days In August" brought all those feelings back.
This well told story, shows how easy it is to ruin a good person's life, with little or no concern for the individual or his family, and with no regard at all for his previous service to his country. In civilian life, there are checks and balances, meager as they may be. But the military is like a country unto itself. Self-governing. With very little oversite by our "crack" government. This is a travesty, that made my blood boil, with each turn of a page. It was tough to read, and impossible to put down. As tough as it was, I thank Bob McCarty for bringing it to our attention. The more people that read this book, hopefully, the more that will contact our government on behalf of SFC Kelly Stewart.
