Save This Soldier

Target: Brigadier General Steven L. Salazar, Commander 7th U.S. Army JMTC
Region: GLOBAL

Petition Background (Preamble):

Sergeant First Class Kelly A. Stewart is an Army Green Beret with multiple tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was recently unjustly convicted of crimes of sexual assault, sodomy and kidnapping.

SFC Stewart has repeatedly declared his innocence but no appeal is possible for 1-2 years. So in the meantime, an innocent soldier sits in a cell without promise of being tried fairly.

Brigadier General Steven L. Salazar will review the clemency packet sometime in December. Included in the packet will be this petition, as well as Letters of Support from friends and family, photos, awards and other materials that define who Kelly is as a person. General Salazar will then decide if the sentencing was fair or not and has the power to reduce any or all of his sentences.

Please stand with his family, his friends and fellow soldiers in our efforts to not only publicize the truth, but to relieve a little bit of the injustice that has been served to this soldier and his family.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, being fully aware of SFC Stewart’s court-martial conviction, 8 years sentence and dishonorable discharge, respectfully request that Brigadier General Steven L. Salazar, grant the clemency request of Kelly A. Stewart 88175, currently incarcerated at U.S. Disciplinary Barracks in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas.

We are requesting clemency be granted in reference to the severity of his punishment.
