Interesting turn of events. Apparently the Major was not charged with a crime, but the government felt justified in revoking his Special Forces Tab and kicking him out of the Army.

Last week we reported on the travails of U.S. Army Special Forces officer, Major Matthew Golsteyn who has had his Silver Star with Valor device revoked and his upgrade recommendation for the Distinguished Service Cross rejected.

All of this is happening because of an Army investigation that has uncovered NO substantiated charges. Even worse, we now know [COLOR="rgb(255, 140, 0)"]Major Golsteyn has had his hard-earned Special Forces tab revoked.[/COLOR] And again, the only explanation is that he “killed” a known enemy fighter and bomb maker in Afghanistan. If you need a refresher, here is the description of his actions as a Special Forces A Team Leader that earned him the stellar recognition.

Well, my Army has reached an even greater low.

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “Separations proceedings were initiated against Army Major Matt Golsteyn on the same day that Congressman Duncan Hunter (R., Calif.) published an article in the Daily Beast highlighting Golsteyn’s case, according to a letter obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
