DC Chapter Master Ping List
It’s been a long summer, but we are still in Olney.
This is from Bev Perlson. She is with the Band of Mothers. They watch over our soldiers like mother hens. She is a wonderful lady. They had a powerful weekend in Kansas.
One of the videos from Leavenworth
The Band of Mothers will have photos and After Action Report soon! Col Allen West spoke at the rally and hit it out of the park! He is the Leader our country is calling for and he stands by our troops
Just got back from the Leavenworth 10 rally in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. It was terrific and I will try and get a write-up done before I leave for DC on Wednesday.
I just want to call attention to everyone here in this state that we have a Bronze Star and Purple Heart Recipient from the state of Illinois sitting in Leavenworth. His name is Sgt. Michael Patrick Leahy. Please go to http://www.supportsgtleahy.com/
and sign the petition for this Soldier, there are only 1006 signatures on this petition!!!!!!!!!
I only have one thing to say about this case: The terrorists that Sgt Leahy, Mayo and Hatley were convicted of killing were laughing about the American Soldiers they had killed.
Please send this email all over and ask those you know to sign the Clemency petition. PLEASE SEND A DONATION to help Sgt Leahy’s familiy. I had the honor of meeting his lovely wife this weekend and she is truly a warrior who has every intention of seeing her Hero come home. Jamie Leahy makes the trip to Leavenworth every two weeks, from Bolingbrook, Illinois. I can tell you folks, it’s almost an 8 hour drive.
Also, I am heading to DC this week and I plan to converge on John McCain’s office on Thursday. He sits on the Armed Services Committee and it is time he helped the Leavenworth 10. These Soldiers should be allowed to sign the same Pledge the terrorists are now given: the terrorists sign a Pledge that they won’t return to the battlefield and they are sent home! What is good enough for the terrorists should be good enough for American Soldiers!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IT WOULD BE A BIG HELP IF EVERYONE WOULD PICK UP THE PHONE TOMORROW AND CALL SENATOR MCCAIN’S OFFICE AND DEMAND THAT THE LEAVENWORTH 10 BE GIVEN THE SAME PLEDGE TO SIGN THAT THE TERRORISTS ARE BEING GIVEN AND RETURN THEM TO THEIR FAMILIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Senator McCain......(202) 224-2235
