LTC (ret) Jason Amerine was the Commander of Special Forces A-team 574 which was the team that brough Hamid Karzai into southern Afghanistan and then help cuase the collapse and surrender of the Taliban in 2001. For bravery in the invasion, he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal and the Purple Heart. He was also a "Real Hero" in the America's Army video game. 

After Amerine provided information to Representative Duncan Hunter (R-CA) to assist the Congressman in preparing legislation to improve U.S. hostage freeing efforts in 2014, the Army received complaints from the FBI. In early 2015, the U.S. Army initiated what has been deemed by those close to Amerine as a retaliatory criminal investigation for his work aimed at improving hostage rescue procedures. In May 2015, Amerine's West Point Classmates initiated a Whitehouse.gov petition to “provide LTC Jason Amerine, SF, US Army, Whistleblower Protection and end all investigations and unfavorable actions.” On June 11, 2015 Amerine was one of five whistleblowers who testified before the U.S. Senate Committee when it convened a hearing on Federal whistleblowers. 

A couple of weeks ago, Jason was allowed to retire, had his secrity clearance restored recognized for his service to this country by being awarded a Legion of Merit.
