Facing charges from military prosecutors, Aaron Howard, a decorated combat and veteran Navy SEAL has maintained his innocence, passed a pair of polygraph tests, and was found not guilty of all serious charges by a jury of his peers, yet is still facing a destroyed career of service and loss of medical benefits — benefits he and his family urgently need after combat injuries including a traumatic brain injury (TBI), missing facial bones, PTSD, and more.
