Late this afternoon, I received news that a three-judge panel at the Army Court of Criminal Appeals has affirmed the conviction of Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, the highly-decorated Green Beret combat veteran whose life is chronicled in my book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice.
While this ruling is very disappointing, it does not signal the end of the military justice appeals process. The Court of Appeals of the Armed Forces stands as the final level at which Stewart’s case can be appealed.
I’ll share more details after I read the entire opinion.
A nonfiction book based on never-before-published details obtained via interviews and access to the actual Record of Trial, Three Days In August, is certain to make your blood boil. It’s available in paperback and ebook via most online booksellers, including Amazon.com.
