Results:

Below is a partial list of some of the value UAP has added in support our Nation’s Servicemen. None of the following would have been possible without UAP support via the Warrior Fund. _____***1. 1STLT BLAIR (NOT GUILTY): After some of the most intense combat in Afghanistan in 2010, First Lieutenant Shawn Blair was wrongly accused of 2 specifications of attempted murder, aggravated assaults, and other lesser offenses. With UAP’s support, Blair was found not guilty of murder and assault. _____***2. GYSGT HOGAN, SSGT FAGAN, AND MARLOW (CHARGES DISMISSED): Gunnery Sergeant Tim Hogan, Staff Sergeant Trey Fagan, and Mr. Michael Marlow – all part of U.S. Marine Corps Special Operations Command (MARSOC) – were suspected of murdering a Taliban man. UAP provided support for the charges to be dismissed. _____***3. SSGT WUTERICH (CHARGES DISMISSED): Staff Sergeant Frank Wuterich was the primary accused in the so-called “Haditha Massacre.” This was an extremely complex case which lasted six years. UAP provided continuous support for Wuterich to keep all of his civilian attorneys and enlist a graphic arts expert who made trial exhibits (animations and illustrations) which ultimately led to all homicide charges being dismissed at trial. _____***4. CPL SERNA (CHARGES DISMISSED): Corporal Jonny Serna and two other Marines were charged with murder of two Taliban combatants in Afghanistan. UAP provided support for three civilian defense attorneys to represent the accused and work together through the charged period. Charges against all three were dismissed. _____***5. SPC WAGNON (CHARGES DISMISSED): Specialist Michael Wagnon was charged with premeditated murder for the shooting death of an Afghan man. UAP provided support for Wagnon to have civilian counsel throughout the lengthy process and payed for experts and other unusual expenses during key pretrial motions. Murder charges were dismissed by the government just before trial. _____***6. SGT HUTCHINS (CASE OVERTURNED): Sergeant Larry Hutchins the squad leader in the “Hamdania War Crimes” case who was charged with premeditated murder. Hutchins was convicted and sentenced to 15 years. UAP provided support after the conviction which ensured a successful appeal and the case was overturned. On retrial, Hutchins was given time served and served no additional confinement time._____***7. SGT WILLIAMS (SENTENCE REDUCED): Sergeant Michael Williams was convicted of murder and sentenced to 25 years confinement. UAP provided support for a civilian attorney to represent Williams for the clemency and parole process. Michael was released after serving 10 years.

I served for nine years in the U.S. Army infantry. While on my last deployment in Afghanistan in 2009-2010, I was accused of a handful of war crimes along with some of my other platoon mates. The United American Patriots helped me to secure legal counsel outside of the military as well as helped my family while I was being held in pretrial confinement on the military base. The United American Patriots are great friends and advocates of the U.S. soldier, they go above and beyond to help in your greatest time of need. I could never thank them enough for the help that they provided for me and my family they are true blue Americans and amazing friends.

Michael Wagnon

I am concerned with the ROE for the Military. It seems to me that we send our young troops into combat with a disadvantage. Many of our troops are being held in Ft. Leavenworth, Ks for disobeying the ROE'S. How can you know the enemy when they cover themselves as villagers? And how do we justify releasing Bowe Bergdahl, who would have been tried for desertion and put in. Front of a firing squad not so many years ago. Or Chelsea Manning who is rewarded for his/her actions?
