 Navy Acknowledges Railroading of Marine Operator Falsely Accused of War Crimes
Posted By Bill McMorris On January 9, 2019 @ 10:45 am

A Marine Special Forces officer has been promoted in retirement after the Navy acknowledged that he was falsely accused of war crimes for leading his men through a terrorist ambush.

The Board for Correction of Naval Records admitted that Marine Maj. Fred Galvin was railroaded when he led the Corps' first special operations unit (MARSOC) into Afghanistan. In March 2007 his unit was attacked by a suicide bomb followed by small arms fire from terrorists. Galvin and his men returned fire, killing 12 enemies, only to see senior military leaders and investigators accuse his men of massacring civilians.

The author of this brain fart knows nothing about the military or he would know the ONLY "Special Forces" in the US military are in the US Army.
