FRC’s Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin Commends U.S. Army for Retaining Sgt. Martland


FRC News Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Last night, the U.S. Army decided to retain Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland, who was facing discharge by the Army because Martland had confronted an Afghan leader who had repeatedly raped a young Afghan boy.

Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin, former U.S. Army Delta Force commander and current Family Research Council executive vice president, made the following comments:

“I am grateful that the Army finally made the right decision in choosing to retain Sgt. Martland. Sgt. Martland absolutely did the right thing in stepping in to save the boy. No person, military or civilian, should ever have to be punished for doing the right thing, defending the defenseless.

“The Army’s egregious initial plans to discharge Sgt. Martland over this incident were wholly misguided. It is an appalling wrong to tell our soldiers that they must ignore the sexual abuse of children and forever live with the memory of the screams of these children. I am grateful Army leadership came to its senses and is allowing Sgt. Martland to remain in the Army.

“We are grateful to Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), both chairmen of the Armed Services Committees, for their efforts to resolve this injustice,” concluded Boykin.

Last year, FRC and the American Family Association delivered more than 130,000 petition signatures to the Senate Armed Services Committee in support of Sgt. Martland.

Muslim Invasion: The Fuse Is Burning

Dr. Don Boys

Muslin Invasion: The Fuse is Burning! is an interesting, informative, and for the politically correct and infuriating read. Islam, Muslims, immigration, Jihad, Sharia, and the war against our civilization, culture, and creed is a present reality. Gutless public officials are selling us short either by complicity with the enemy or due to a doctrinaire commitment to idiotic tolerance ideology. Whatever the case, citizens must stand up against the invasion now before it is to late. The author suggests that the fuse is burning and the results will end in a complete upheaval of America and every free nation, unless we act now. Forget the lame stream media. Forget Obama. Common sense mandates, our very survival demands that we act NOW to keep America from going off the cliff; This book promises to be a life changing read.
