The Army has reversed course and allow a Special Forces soldier to remain on active duty, after he had been recommended for discharge for beating an Afghan police officer who had raped a boy. The Army Board for the Correction of Military Records (BCMR) made the decision without comment to allow Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland to continue serving. Martland’s case drew support from Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., who urged the BCMR to consider “irregularities” in his case, according to NBC News.
