DEFENDING OUR DEFENDERS _____For over 12 years, UAP has been facilitating legal and transitional support for our Nation’s Warriors who have been wrongfully accused or convicted of “war crimes” or who have faced Courts Martial which have been improperly impacted by undue command influence. _____UAP funds our Nation's Warriors ability to receive: _____***The best legal defense; _____***Stipends while incarcerated to help with family needs, books, stamps, magazine subscriptions, education when VA benefits are lost, etc...; _____***Visitation from loved ones while incarcerated; and _____***Transition assistance to include PTSD treatment, counseling, employment assistance, health care, legal support, etc...
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.

In the past I have been very skeptical regarding charitable contributions to many organizations. If you are like me, I would like to take the opportunity to confirm that United American Patriots (UAP) is the 'real deal'. Five years ago our family found we had been placed in a position of the unknown. One of our very own, a highly decorated, well respected 1LT fighting for our country was convicted of murder for doing his job. He had killed no one, he was fighting in a war zone with the enemy. Murder??? UAP picked up our family and has led us every step of the way in fighting for justice. These board members not only assist financially but they actually care and console the soldier and their family. UAP is not frivolous, they are well managed and maintained. This is a charitable organization that actually uses your donation in the manner it states as its cause... I know this because the Lorance family will forever be grateful for how UAP has been there to assist our soldier, our hero, my nephew 1LT Clint Lorance. We continue to fight for justice today THANKS TO UAP.

Our family was at the point of desperation trying to figure out how we were going to afford the legal fees required to fight for our son, Sgt. Derrick Miller. The UAP was a godsend to us at a time when hope was in short supply. Their steadfast support, not only in the form of financial assistance with legal fees, but with travel funds to visit our son, monthly stipends so that he can call home regularly, and emotional support for all of us when the burden was almost unbearable, is something I can never find adequate words to express our gratitude for. This organization is nothing short of amazing, and is performing a crucial service to families like ours who have nowhere else to turn in our time of need.
