Soldier Railroaded to Prison by Charges of Perverted Sex, Physical Roughness and a Tale Untrue
April 9, 2012
I have read every word in Bob McCarty's 283-page barn-burner, "Three Days in August," featuring a military trial gone a muck where one of America's finest Special Forces service men was falsely painted as a monster of perversion, hard sex torture, physical violence and subjected to a tainted trial by Americans in a venue where he should have found true justice, but didn't come close to getting it.
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. His wife, herself a soldier serving away at the time, stands by him, his family never forsook him and his fellow soldiers never lost faith. But the military justice system failed this good man. You will find it difficult to believe what he had to endure at the hands of the military justice system as he was jostled and bound in double handcuffs, no shoes, no socks and only a hospital gown to cover his body as he was forced into public rental car agencies, airports and civilian airplanes;Paraded before fellow military men and women.
I strongly recommend this book. Parents should place a copy in the hands of any child leaving home to serve in the military. This account just might give one pause before straying off the straight and narrow.
