The Army Sergeant who defended an Afghan boy from a rapist must wait - once again - to learn of his fate. In September the United States Army rejected the appeal of a U.S. special forces soldier who was ordered to be discharged for confronting an Afghan police commander who'd allegedly raped a young boy.
After that appeal rejection, a decision from the military on the fate of Sgt. First Class Charles Martland, an 11-year Special Forces veteran, was due Tuesday. That decision has now been put off for a third time, until at least May 1.
“Charles did the right thing in Afghanistan by standing up to a child rapist and corrupt commander, and now it’s the Army’s turn to do the right thing and reverse the decision to expel him from the service,” Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., whose office has been assisting Martland, told FoxNews.com earlier this month. “Permitting Charles to continue serving is in the best interest of the Army and the nation.”
