U.S. Army Special Forces Sgt.1st Class Kelly A. Stewart admitted to having a one-night stand with a 28-year-old German woman the night of Aug. 22, 2008. She did, too. Both knew sex was part of the plan when they left the discotheque near Stuttgart. Two months later, however, her story changed and the highly-decorated combat veteran found himself facing rape and kidnapping charges.
The story would fill a book, and Bob McCarty has done just that -- written a book about it, titled Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight for Military Justice. Bob will appear tonight along with CMSgt. John Stewart, the father of Kelly A. Stewart, a former Green Beret whose life is chronicled in McCarty’s book. Retired after spending most of three decades of service in Air Force Special Operations, Chief Stewart has fought relentlessly to help his son obtain justice in the military court system.
