I’ve learned in recent days that two prominent politicians have recently received copies of my book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice.
On Friday, I ran into John Brunner (photo above left), a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri, when both of us were speaking to a local Republican gathering. The former Marine officer told me he had purchased a copy of my book at Amazon.com, in part, because he was very concerned about the detrimental impact of things such as political correctness and untenable rules of engagement on our troops in uniform.
This evening, I learned from a good friend that a good friend gave Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich (photo above right) a copy of the book during a campaign event in Florida.
Brunner and Gingrich join 35 members of the House Armed Services Committee among the ranks of politicians who’ve received copies of my book.
Hopefully, some of them will join former Green Beret Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, the man whose life is chronicled in the Three Days In August, in his fight for a new trial and a chance to clear his name.
