This document is a letter from the father of a U.S. Army soldier to a general. The author’s son is up for court-martial, and the father makes an emotional plea to the general to allow his son to instead resign with an honorable discharge. In the letter, the father cites examples of his son’s dedication to his community, the military and the country.
