Army Review Board Agency Online Application for Correction of Military Records - or - Discharge Review of james spencer III - i'm an african american  and i was not guilty of selling drugs because i was setup by racist soldiers and officers because of the racist climate at the time   - and i was mistreated and attacked and beaten and forced to fight other soldiers every day at ft. hood, texas, 1977, and was told that  if i don't be come a good nigger i will be hanged and or sent to fort levinworth. -

from enlisting in 1975, i spent about six months at fort dixion, and one and half years at fort jackson and never had a problem with racist soldiers and  had a clean record - only when i was transferred to fort hood, texas,  A company 163 military intelligence battalion and was told by  sergeant william charles garrett jr. and others "that just because i call you a nigger - you not going to get away with talking back" as i would say "why are you are being a racist and treating me worse than a dog".  
 
as i complained  i was ordered to see an army physiatrist
and the physiatrist   reported that nothing was wrong with me
and recomended that i be transfered to a more friendly unit
which i wasn't-

also my family mother knew of my racist treatment and wrote
a letter to president jimmy carter and president carter intervined
and advocated on my behalf and i was finally released from fort
hood, texas, - although falsly convicted and given a bad conduct discharge-
 
general collen powel said if he would have entered the army a few years earlier he would not have been succesfull because of the racist climate was a lot worse - and that was the time james spencer  was in the army - especially texas-
 
james spencer has never been convicted of any crime felony in civilian life-
 
over the years james spencer has requested help from the red cross about three times and the cuyahoga veterans services about three times for benifits which wern't given and have the false bad conduct discharge over turned to honorable - and no one would stand up to the racist part of our militray -goverment and help  james spencer-
 
james spencers complete story will be added as james recalls more and more military records and documents - also the investigation by the army Review Board Agency -
 
if any one knows of an attorney that could help represent james - please contact james -
