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.

They lie about the war criminals they represent in order to obtain donations that fund the lawyers that are on their board. Less than 20 percent of donated funds go to legal assistance and the assistance they do provide goes to board members. Do not donate, they are lying to you for their own benefit. They are nothing more than a law firm masquerading as a non profit so they can get paid outrageous fees for poor service. What they pay the lawyers on their board is well above the industry standard.. They have recently been outed by one of their clients for trying to exploit them for donations instead actually working their case. They admitted to past failures and now want you to trust them as they hired a CEO with a domestic violence conviction to set them straight.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Reported to the IRS, DOJ and Virginia AG for a criminal investigation.
