Posted on 12/13/2012 7:11:25 PM PST by Steve Newton
The Silver Star Families of America work to free Lance Corporal Hammar.
Well if you all thought dealing with Washington was a strange experience try dealing with Mexico City when you have no idea of the language or customs.
As everyone knows by now Lance Corporal Hammar made a mistake and brought an old .410 shotgun into Mexico. He was arrested and has been in jail since August 15th.
As a veteran Marine with PTS, Hammar comes under our mission statement and we have been trying hard to have him released.
We have written our State Department, every Mexican Consulate in the U.S., including their Embassy in Washington, The President of Mexico and our Embassies and consulates in Mexico.
We are happy to report that we made contact with a consulate officer who has just seen Hammar the last of November. He is not chained to a bed and has been moved out of the general population.
We are also able to send him books while we work to free him.
I am proud of all we have been able to accomplish so far.
Speaking of money. (Smile) Our phones bills have skyrocketed with International calls, etc. If you were ever gonna donate folks we need it now for expenses and items to send to Hammar.
Keep praying. We hope he will be home by Christmas.
I promised an update.
Things are looking up.
Thread from today here:
“Extortion call, somber visit bring nightmare home for parents of Marine jailed in Mexico”
Thank you so much, posted a link to the site on the ROE (Rules of Engagement) facebook page. Keeping everyone on the same agenda.
Thank you my FRiend.
I am glad we were able to FINALLY get a hold of someone who can help us.
Later I will tell you about an unsung hero. A liberal to the left of Kennedy.
Strange bed fellows.
I really feel it won’t be long.
Tomorrow I have a phone conference with the Governor of that Mexican State.
Now. Something I never even thought about. How many other vets are in jail in Mexico?
The more we dig the more we find.
God help them and us
Emails sent out with requests to forward asking for support for your efforts. I thank you Steve for doing what Obama and the state dept. refuse to do.
Hannity showed an interview, has a link to the White House Petition page...
Aww. I thank you. It is our honor.
Strange thing. As usually happens when working on something you discover other things. It is amazing how many Americans are in jail in Mexico. Wonder how many vets among them?
“About 400 Americans are detained in Mexican prisons at any time, said Charles Smith, a public affairs officer for the U.S. Consulate General in Tijuana. His office monitors the Baja peninsula in Mexico, where the Chrismans are being held. Of all Americans arrested on foreign soil, one in five is arrested in Baja California.”
Just wanted you to know. First package went out today. Thank you!
