GI Beats Trumped Up Charges

SP/4 Allen Myers won an acquittal from a Ft. Dix court martial on October 1. He was charged with an AR 210-27, which prohibits the ditribution of leaflets and other printed matter that is "in bad taste," "prejudicial to good order," or "subversive."

The prosecution of Myers failed to present an adequate case. Two GIs who were scheduled to testify against him, became unwilling to do so. The SP/4 was allegedly passing out a leaflet entitled "support our men in Vietnam, not those who send them there."
