Army to consider returning award to Matthew Golsteyn, soldier pardoned by Trump | USA Today

Matthew Golsteyn was pardoned by President Trump after being charged with murder of a bomb-maker who was going to be released in Afghanistan in 2010. After previously being denied his membership reinstatement for the Special Forces, the Army is now considering returning his Special Forces Tab and Distinguished Service Cross. Golsteyn claims he shot the man, because he believed the bomb-maker would continue to terrorize the locals and threaten U.S. troops and their Afghan partners.
