Huge VICTORY For Green Beret Punished For Saving Young Boy

Last year, Special Forces Sgt. First Class Charles Martland was threatened with expulsion from the Army after he and Special Forces captain Dan Quinn pulled an Afghan commander away from a boy he'd been abusing and threw him to the ground. The abuse in Afghanistan is common, but Martland and Quinn couldn't stand by and let it happen when they witnessed it.

Even though the Afghan Local Police were U.S. allies, Martland said that "morally we could no longer stand by and allow [them] to commit atrocities."

Quinn said he and Martland were punished because they broke the Army's orders that they not intervene in these types of local incidences.

But according to NBC News, the Army last week reversed their decision to expel Martland and will allow him to stay. Quinn has already left military service. The Army did not explain why they decided to not punish Martland, but they did deny telling soldiers to not intervene when they witness sexual assaults.

The issue of how the U.S. military handles atrocities committed by the local police forces in Afghanistan continues to be a contentious one.
