We just submitted the rebuttal of the denial of Travis Bishop’s C.O. claim by the hearing investigating officer. (this rebuttal and the IO’s recommendation will now proceed to the convening authority at Fort Hood, and then to the US Army Conscientious Objector Review board)

Travis has asked me to post his rebuttal in its entirety online.

Part 1 of Travis Bishop Rebuttal (PDF download – 28 pages)

Part 2 of Travis Bishop Rebuttal (PDF download) – handwritten personal statement by Travis

Part 3 of Travis Bishop Rebuttal (PDF download) – this part was the Amnesty International statement on Travis Bishop

Correction of Travis Bishop Rebuttal (PDF download) – a correction memo to add an all important missing word

I also need to give some credit where credit is due…

1. Thanks to members of the MLTF and the GI Rights Network for sending me sample rebuttals from past cases to review, as well as their advice and suggestions.

2. Huge thanks go to Thad Crouch and Larry Egly for gathering the supporting letters.

3. Thanks to Rena for last minute typo editing.

4. And thanks to all who posted encouraging notes to facebook while I was writing this.

We will later post the documents provided by the other side in this case, but first must redact all of the SSN’s and other information. (these documents are in the public record, but I still want to protect the privacy of those who wrote statements)
