The American Vision – Ambushed Marines Wrongfully Accused of Murder – Guest, Fred Christopher Galvin, Major USMC (Ret.)


Fred Christopher Galvin, Major USMC (Ret.)

Fred Galvin joined the U.S. Marine Corps from northeast Kansas immediately after graduating from high school at 17 in 1987. As a Corporal he served in a M-60 Tank Company assigned to Regimental Landing Team 5 and conducted combat operations during Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm.

Fred Galvin has also graduated from one of the U.S. Military/Marines most rigorous infantry, reconnaissance, special operations and special skills courses. Additionally, he completed the Marine Corps Professional Military Education programs including the Amphibious Warfare Course and Command and Staff College. He is also a graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Henry Bloch School of Management’s Master of Business Administration program.

Fred utilized the G.I. Bill to complete two bachelor’s degrees before working as a financial consultant with Chatfield Dean, Inc. and Smith Barney, Inc. for two years.

Officer Candidate Class in 1995

Fred reentered the Marine Corps through the Officer Candidate Class program and was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in 1995. He graduated from the Infantry Officer Course and served as an Infantry Platoon Commander in the 1st Marine Division where he deployed again to the Persian Gulf in 1998 with Battalion Landing Team 1/4.  He was later assigned as a Force Reconnaissance Platoon Commander in Okinawa with the 5th Force Reconnaissance where his Platoon conducted 16 multi-national exercises and two separate deployments aboard the USS ESSEX with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit.

Captain Galvin was transferred for instructor duty with Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron – 1 (USMC equivalent of USN’s TOP GUN and USAF’s RED FLAG) in August 2001 where he instructed students on heliborne raids, fire support coordination for surface fired artillery, mortars and close air support with aviation attack aircraft releasing ordnance in close proximity with friendly forces on the ground.

Force Recon Warrior in Harm’s Way

Captain Galvin was transferred to 1st Force Reconnaissance in December 2002 as a Force Reconnaissance Platoon Commander where he conducted multiple combat operations including seizing 36 ships in the Northern Arabian Gulf, Gulf of Oman and Gulf of Aden in 2003-2004 and participating in more than 40 reconnaissance missions and more than 100 precision raids against high level insurgents in Iraq in 2003 and 2005.

Major Galvin was assigned to command the Marine Corps’ first Special Operations Task Force in February 2006. Then in January 2007, Major Galvin commanded the Marine Corps’ first Special Operations Task Force overseas and conducted combat operations in Eastern Afghanistan. While conducting combat operations near the Afghanistan border on March 4, 2007 he and his team were ambushed by a suicide van bomb and violently attacked from a highly coordinated enemy force which his team precisely and effectively destroyed. Four months later following a three-and-one-half-week courtroom trial, the Marine Central Command stated that Major Galvin’s Task Force,

acted appropriately and in accordance within the Rules of Engagement and the tactics, techniques and procedures for a complex ambush.”

In Dec 2009, Major Galvin was transferred to Okinawa, Japan to serve as Operations Officer with III Marine Expeditionary Force’s Special Operations Training Group where he coordinated and conducted training and evaluations for the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit and participated in several multi-national training exercises in the Pacific Rim. In November 2010, Major Galvin was transferred to 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion for duty as the Operations Officer where he coordinated and participated in numerous exercises and operations including multi-national exercises in the Pacific Rim, Joint Special Operations Task Force Philippines, and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.

Major Galvin was transferred to Norfolk, Virginia in July 2012 for duty as the Commanding Officer of 1st Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Team (1st FAST.) Following the 11 Sept 2012 attack on US personnel in Benghazi, Tripoli, 6th Platoon, 1st FAST deployed to Tripoli, Libya on 12 Sept 2012 to provide anti security at the American Embassy and Regional Affairs Office in Tripoli, Libya for three months.

Retirement from the Marine Corps

Major Galvin retired from the Marine Corps on April 1, 2014 and founded Arrowhead Capital developing drive up ATMs in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Additionally, he founded Heroes United, a 100 percent 501c3 organization, which provides morale events for the Mid-America Gold Star families to professional and collegiate sporting events, in addition to an annual full-ride university scholarship for a widow or surviving child. He sold his business and dissolved the Gold Star family charity in late 2018 and accepted a permanent position to serve with the Marine Corps.

Falsely and Repeatedly Condemned

Upon retirement, Major Galvin’s former Special Operations Task Force was falsely and repeatedly condemned in the national press, international press, as well as by Amnesty International and the International Bar Association regarding the former 2007 false allegations of murdering innocent Afghan women and children. Fred Galvin has been featured on more than 100 multi-channel media engagements since March 2015 in combination with Congressmen Walter B. Jones (R-NC, bill sponsor), Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) and Ruben Gallego (D-AZ, former USMC combat veteran of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM) to relieve the threats of domestic Islamic terrorism and end employment discrimination through House Resolution – 21, that would have the Commandant of the Marine Corps issue an official statement that the Marines were “not at fault during the 4 March 2007 ambush.” In January 2019 the Department of the Navy released an official 12-page definitive investigative report from a 2018 deliberate hearing in the Pentagon that found Galvin’s actions while deployed in Afghanistan were just and sound.

A Plea for Justice for Combat Marines

Major Galvin continues to ask all citizens to contact their elected officials to urge that a Congressional hearing be held to hold the officers found complicit of immoral and unethical acts accountable, an action that the Pentagon’s military leadership has refused to take action.
