    In a letter delivered to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, Steve Newton, founder and CEO of the Silver Star Families of America, has offered to swap himself for the Marine Sergeant who accidentally crossed over the border into Mexico with legal firearms.

    “The mission of the Silver Star Families of America is to remember, honor and assist the wounded, ill and injured of our Armed Forces from all wars. Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi suffers from seen and unseen wounds of war and thus he falls under our mission. We do not leave a man behind, Steve Newton stated.”

    “This is not our first rodeo,” Newton continued. We were actively involved when Jon Hammer was imprisoned in 2012. We have to be very careful not to interfere in any official or unofficial efforts being made to free Tahmooressi. We are simply asking the Honorable President of Mexico to intervene in this situation. And a swap for an old sergeant like me for a young man with his whole life ahead of him seems like the thing to do.”

    The Silver Star Families of America is a 501 c 3 nonprofit who provides for recognition, remembrance and assistance to our wounded, ill and injured. They can be contacted at www.silverstarfamilies.org

    Dear President Nieto:

    My name is Steve Newton and I am the founder and CEO of the Silver Star Families of America. (SFOA) We have one mission: To remember, honor and assist the wounded, ill, injured and dying of our Armed Forces from all wars. We are a nongovernmental organization dedicated to those who have sacrificed for freedom.

    I am writing concerning a Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi. He has fought well for his country and for the cause of freedom. As he is now suffering from post-traumatic stress we consider him wounded and thus he falls under our mission. We do not wish to interfere in any nation to nation negotiations or in the judicial process of the Republic of Mexico. But we do wish to stand with him.

    Sergeant Tahmooressi accidentally crossed into the Republic of Mexico with firearms that are legal in the United States. He is now incarcerated at El Hongo Penal Tecate, BC and is suffering greatly from his war wounds, both physical and mental. I do not know if you have ever been to war for your country. But I have and I can tell you the experience lingers in your mind and body. I make no excuses because he violated the letter of the Mexican Republics law. But I don’t believe he violated the spirit of the law. Whatever foul he committed was not intentional and holding him would be cruel for he has suffered much already. The good heart of the Mexican people has always been without question. I appeal now to that good heart. I ask that Sergeant Tahmooressi be released at the earliest opportunity. President Nieto: It lays within your power to help an individual that has given up so much already. I ask that you do so. That you do the right thing. If there is a penalty to pay, let it fall to me. I am no longer young. Sergeant Tahmooressi has his whole life ahead of him. If you so wish I will gladly trade places with him and pay out whatever price that is required. A Republic is known by its patriotism—but it is also known by its compassion. Let us meet and discuss this. But let us do so as friends. I look forward to our conversations and to a mutual agreement in justice and honor.

    You’re Friend

    Estimado Sr. Presidente Peña Nieto:

    Mi nombre es Steve Newton y soy el fundador y Director the Silver Star Families of Am....... Tenemos una mision: Recordar, honrar y asistir a los heridos, enfermos, lastimados y proximos a morir de nuestras fuerzas armadas de todas las guerras. Somos una organizacion no gubernamental dedicada a aquellos que se han sacrificado por la libertad

    Le escribo con respecto al marino S......El ha peleado bien por su pais y por la causa de la libertad. Ya que en este momento el esta sufriendo de stress postraumatico, lo consideramos herido y entra dentro de nuestra mision. No deseamos interferir con ninguna negociacion de nacion a nacion o en el proceso judicial de la Republica de Mexico, pero si deseamos hablar por el.

    El Sargento T.....accidentalmente cruzo a la Republica de Mexico con armas de fuego que son legales en los Estados Unidos de America. El esta actualmente preso en El Hongo P.........., Baja California, y esta sufriendo mucho por sus heridas de guerra tanto mental como fisicamente.

    No se si alguna vez usted ha peleado por su pais. Yo si lo he hecho y puedo decirle que la experiencia se queda permanentemente en la mente y en el cuerpo. No estoy inventando excusas porque el violo la carta de la ley de la Republica Mexicana, pero creo que el no violo el espiritu de la ley. Cualquier falta que el haya cometido no fue intencional y el detenerlo seria cruel ya que el ha sufrido mucho.

    El buen corazon de la gente de Mexico siempre ha sido bien conocido. Yo apelo a ese buen corazon.

    Le pido que el Sargento T...sea liberado a la brevedad posible.

    Sr. Presidente Peña Nieto queda en sus manos ayudar a un individuo que ya ha dado tanto y yo atentamente se lo pido. Le ruego que haga lo correcto. Si hay alguna penalizacion que pagar, yo la pagare. Ya no soy joven y el Sargento T.......tiene toda la vida por delante. Si usted asi lo desea yo tomare su lugar y pagare el precio que sea necesario.

    Una Republica se conoce por su patriotismo--pero tambien por su compasion. Por favor reunamonos para discutir lo anterior, pero permitanos hacerlo como amigos.

    En espera de nuestra conversacion y de un mutuo acuerdo en justicia y honor, quedo de usted su atento, seguro servidor y amigo,

    Atentamente.

    CLEVER, MO—June 4, 2014—The Silver Star Families of America (SSFOA) has called upon the Department of Veterans Affairs to expand the use of its Non-VA Care Programs to help mitigate the wait times for veterans in need of medical care.

    A non-profit based out of Clever, Mo., the SSFOA’s primary mission is to support and recognize veterans who are wounded, injured, or have acquired an illness related to their service in a combat zone—regardless of service branch or military conflict. After sources recently revealed that the Phoenix VA hospital maintained a secret ‘wait list,’ the VA has fallen under greater scrutiny, resulting in allegations that delays in medical appointments and treatment have led to the unncecesary deaths of several veterans. “The VA has the ability to authorize medical treatmeant outside of the VA network when—according to their own website—there is a ‘lack of available specialiasts, long wait times’ or, in certain circumstances, the medical treatment provided by the VA is located an ‘extroardinary distance from the veteran’s home,’” said Steve Newton, CEO and founder of the SSFOA.

    “Had the Non-VA Care Program been appropriately utilized by the Phoenix VA and at other facilities, the wait times would never have become an issue” Newton added. “However, moving forward, I believe we can best serve our veterans and mitigate any wait times by authorizing medical care outside of the VA hospitals.”

    U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney, an Army veteran and member the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, has recently cosponsored the Veteran-Centered Access to Coordinated Health Care Act, H.R. 3858, which would help the VA improve access to care by expanding its ability to enter into contracts with non-VA providers.

    A non-profit based out of Clever, Mo., the SSFOA’s primary mission is to support and recognize veterans who are wounded, injured, or have acquired an illness related to their service in a combat zone—regardless of service branch or military conflict.

    Last month, after sources revealed that the Phoenix VA maintained a secret ‘wait list,’ the VA has fallen under greater scrutiny, resulting in allegations that delays in medical appointments and treatment have led to the unncecesary deaths of several veterans. “Cooking the books on veterans’ ‘wait times’ is not only a tragedy, but anyone involved at every one of the VA Medical Centers should face immediate and serious consequences for their deplorable actions,” said Steve Newton, CEO and founder of the SSFOA.

    “Often times my fellow veterans must drive for hours just to receive medical care through the VA; however, to delay critical medical appointments which then results in wait times that could be a matter of life and death for our nation’s most ill veterans—that is simply unacceptable” Newton added.

    The SSFOA plans to present its complaints to Congress in an effort to ensure veterans do not suffer because of deliberate and calculated delays in the provision of treatment.

    By Jeremy P. Amick

    Often times we find ourselves so involved with the flurry of activities designed to recognize the efforts our brave veterans and servicemembers, that we occasionally overlook the profound sacrifices made by the organizations supporting them.

    The majority of these unsung heroes work tirelessly behind the scenes while receiving little—if any—recognition for the labors they put forth in support of a cause to which they feel inextricably woven.

    Those within military and veteran social circles have become familiar with the Blue Star Mothers of America (an organization recognizing those with family members serving in armed forces) and the American Gold Star Mothers (an organization honoring those who have lost a son or daughter in the service); however, there is one classification of veteran that often goes unnoticed: those wounded, ill or dying as a result of their military service.

    Resurrected from the back pages of World War I history, one such organization—the Silver Star Families of America (SSFOA)—has received a new breath of life. The history and use of the Silver Star can be traced back to 1917, during which time it was adopted by the American War Mothers to recognize the combat wounded.

    An early practice developed into a tradition when the mothers of World War I servicemembers would cover the blue star on the service flag with silver thread to honor a loved one who was injured in the line of duty.

    This practice remained relatively popular throughout both World I and II, but sadly fell away in the ensuing years.

    But in 2004—through the dedication and foresight of its Clever, Mo. founders, Steve and Diana Newton—the SSFOA was formally established and received its official status as a charitable organization shortly thereafter.

    The primary token of recognition provided by the SSFOA consists of a Silver Star Service Banner and certificate of recognition—both provided free of charge—to veterans with qualifying injuries.

    Qualifying injuries include: Purple Heart recipients; victims of friendly fire; those suffering from post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, Agent Orange and Gulf War Syndrome; and those with injuries, wounds or illnesses originating in a combat zone.

    "We are blessed to have individuals with such courage and dignity in the USA,” states SSFOA co-founder and daughter of a U.S. Navy veteran, Diana Creed-Newton, “and it is a small gesture of our eternal thanks for our combat wounded and ill troops and veterans.”

    The SSFOA has expanded their efforts to recognize veterans by collaborating with organizations such as the Thank You Foundation to honor those servicemembers who have experienced an injury or illness occurring outside of a combat zone or in times of peace.

    The organization has also established programs which pay tribute to the sacrifices made by military medical personnel, merchant marines, and—in honor of our four-legged friends—even provide a certificate recognizing the important contributions that have been made by military working dogs.

    Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has acknowledged the work of the SSFOA by signing a bill establishing May 1 of every year as the “Silver Star Families of America Day” in Missouri, in addition to holding regular ceremonies in his capitol office during which combat veterans are presented with a banner.

    The United States Senate and U.S. House of Representatives soon followed with resolutions recognizing May 1 in honor of our combat wounded and ill troops and veterans.

    "The members of the Silver Star Families of America and I are deeply gratified that Missouri was the first state in the nation to recognize the Silver Star Service Banner and Silver Star Service Banner Day,” stated the organization’s founder and Marine Corps veteran, Steve Newton.

    “With the United States House of Representatives passing House Resolution 855 and the Senate passing Senate Resolution 534 affirming at the Federal level, May 1st will forever be a day for the country to remember and honor our wounded, ill and injured from all wars,” he added.

    Currently all 50 states and over 3,000 cities and counties have signed proclamations in support of May 1st date.

    As a charitable organization, the SSFOA relies primarily upon a group of volunteers and the financial support of donors in order to maintain and continue their military- and veteran-centric recognition efforts.

    For more information on the mission of the SSFOA, their various programs, or to request a banner and certificate in recognition of an injured or wounded veteran, please visit their website at www.silverstarfamilies.org.

    I believe you are correct but of course contacting the Blue Star Moms would be appropriate. What I understand is that if you are serving in time of conflict you may display the Blue Star Service Banner.

    The rules for Service Banners are far more complicated than one would believe.

    That is one reason the Silver Star Families, were named “families” and not just mothers.

    Any one may display a Silver Star Flag at anytime to honor wounded, ill and injured.

    A Silver Star Service Banner may be displayed by any family member anytime.

    CHAIRMAN OF THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF WASHINGTON, O.C. 20318-9999 1 May 2014

    2014 Silver Star Service Banner Day In honor of the Silver Star Families of America, I join each of you in remembering and showing tribute to our wounded and ill Service men and women, and their families.

    Across our Nation, events such as the 2014 Silver Star Service Banner Day offer a time to pause and to reflect upon family and community that includes the sacrifices of the millions who have stood and are currently standing in defense of our Country.

    There is no substitute for the privilege of serving our Country. Our dedicated Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen are true professionals because they inherited a proud legacy of service, dedication, and loyalty. Our returning warriors, America's veterans, are best served by the attention to detail, care, and professionalism of a grateful Nation.

    By keeping America's veterans in our hearts, we assure the men and women serving today that we are also appreciative of their sacrifices.

    On behalf of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the men and women of the Armed Forces of the United States, I join the Silver Star Families of America in support of our Nation's wounded warriors, veterans, their families, and for those currently serving in the Armed Forces who defend peace and stability around the globe.

    Sincerely, MARTIN E. DEMPSEY General, U.S. Army

    Here is their mission plan again:

    OPERATION AMERICAN SPRING - Washington, D.C. in the cross-hairs - The Out-of-Control Government Leadership Must Be Stopped

    OPERATION AMERICAN SPRING

    OAS

    (Please add the above title and some or all data from below to your FB, Twitter, Blog, Email list)

    TO: Patriots (black, white, red, yellow, brown, male, female, civilian, military, truckers, bikers, militias, veterans, old, young, every American that loves freedom and liberty)

    Mission: Restoration of Constitutional government, rule of law, freedom, liberty “of the people, for the people, by the people” from despotic and tyrannical federal leadership.

    Assumptions:
    Millions of Americans will participate.
    American veterans and patriots are energized to end the tyranny, lawlessness, and shredding of the US Constitution.
    Government is not the target, it is sound; corrupt and criminal leadership must be removed.
    Those in power will not hesitate to use force against unarmed, peaceful patriots exercising their constitutional rights.
    Patriots may be killed, wounded, incarcerated.
    There is no hope given today’s technology of secrecy for the effort nor do we want it secret.

    Concept of Operations:
    Phase 1 - Field millions, as many as ten million, patriots who will assemble in a peaceful, non-violent, physically unarmed (Spiritually/Constitutionally armed), display of unswerving loyalty to the US Constitution and against the incumbent government leadership, in Washington, D.C., with the mission to bring down the existing leadership. Go full-bore, no looking back, steadfast in the mission.

    THE BLUEPRINT from LSTV on Vimeo.

    Phase 2 - One million or more of the assembled 10 million must be prepared to stay in D.C. as long as it takes to see Obama, Biden, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi, and Attorney General Holder removed from office. The senior republican in the US House of Representatives will become Speaker of the House and the US House of Representatives will elect a temporary President and Vice President of the United States. The U.S. Senate will take action to elect a new majority and minority leader.
    As required, the U.S. Congress will execute appropriate legislation to convene new elections or U.S. States will appoint replacements for positions vacated consistent with established constitutional requirements.

    Phase 3 – Those with the principles of a West, Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gov Walker, Sessions, Gowdy, Jordan, will comprise a tribunal and assume positions of authority to convene investigations, recommend appropriate charges against politicians and government employees to the new U.S. Attorney General appointed by the new President.

    *All actions in Phase 2 & 3 will be consistent with the U.S. Constitution.

    Date of Operation: “OPERATION AMERICAN SPRING – Beginning Of Tyranny Housecleaning, May 16, 2014, completion to be determined

    We are past the point of no return, thus must move forward with an effort to save our nation, as there is no other choice. We are asking, pleading with you, and any others that have resources, national voices, email lists, blogs, FB, Twitter, to call for a non-violent American Spring May 16 2014 in Washington D.C. We must appeal to ten million and more American patriots to come and stay in Washington, D.C. to stop the White House and Congress from total destruction of the United States. It’s now or never. God help us.

    .....the law of nature rules. A fluffy, cuddly lamb gets eaten by a mean old wolf is not an illegal or immoral event...the law of nature. When some greedy, self-serving occupant of the White House or Congress, or elements outside America, is threatening our existence, our freedom, our liberty, our Constitution, our life resources, our America, then we fight back to destroy the threat and there is nothing immoral or illegal about it. When the government becomes lawless, then “we the people” no longer are obligated to follow the government......there is no law when government picks and chooses for political purposes or personal agenda. At this time the government is performing as a lawless entity......

    Hey Laz

    I wrote about this the other day and took a lot of grief from Rodger Hunter or Navy Vet. Dead set against marches.

    But here is what I know about Operation American Spring:

    Very good people are joining them. I am unsure of Colonel Riley as a leader. He seems to be letting his people make their own plans. No communicative. Little logistics.

    But as I said the people are great.

    “Phase two and three” of his plan seems unconstitutional but I am hoping that association with FR will get him to change it.

    Bottom line, having TWO protest don’t make much sense.

    Combine them and correct what is wrong with OAS.

    Just my opinion.

    Agreed. There Phase two and three are not legal in my opinion. But that can hopefully be changed by Jim.

    Have you seen the thread from Jim?

    And believe me I am not late to the game.

    As I have said through out this thread I am simply putting two people together. Jim and Col Riley.

    And if you don’t know my back round, goggle it.

    Not my deal my friend. As I said, I am simply putting two people together than expressed a desire to protest.

    Tactics? Well we can discuss that.

    I pray your wrong brother. For I know not what else to do or advocate for.

    This might be our last chance if we do it right.

    Or. It might bring about 200 people. I don’t know.

    Thank you brother.

    But I am thinking it is beyond even that. I think we should just close DC down. And wait.
