CARSON, Cob. (AP) Walter Lee Martin is a fwice- wounded veteran of two tours in Vietnam and is only 15 years old, says the U.S. attorney's of- fice. Martin of Dothan, Ala., 6 feet 3 and 198 pounds, joined the Army three years ago under an assumed name and went to Vietnam where he was wounded at the age of 13. His real identi- ty eventually was learned and he was shipped home, according to Asst. U.S. Atty. James Rich- ards. Now, two years later, the Army has found that Martin somehow got back into its ranks under another alias. And, Rich- ards said, Martin has been mar- ried for four months. Sometime after being sent home, Richards said, Martin ob- tained the identification and or- ders of a S.Sgt. Albert Lewis Jr., got back into the Army and was shipped to Vietnam where he again was wounded. He was sent to Ft. Gordon, Ga., to recover from his wounds. Apparently while on leave from Ft. Gordon, Rich- ards said, posing as home to Ala- bama and married. Early this month, he was as- signed to duty with the military police at Ft. Carson. The real S.Sgt. Albert Lewis Jr. was in Vietnam where he re-enlisted and requested emer- gency leave home. While drawing up a pay voucher for Lewis' leave, the Army apparently learned they were paying two S.Sgi. Albert Lewis Jrs., Richards said. The Army notified Ft. Carson and Martin was arrested by the FBI and charged with a fraud on the government. Richards said he would re- quest that prosecution be de- ferred and that the probation department recommend a course of action. He indicated Martin may be placed on one- year probation and sent home.
