If you’ve already signed – thank you and please re-post to your family, friends, blogs, FB and call your local media with the story.

Demand Release of U.S.M.C. Sgt. Tahmooressi Suffering with PTSD from Mexico Imprisonment
Sgt. Tahmooressi, living in a truck having just arrived San Diego to seek VA assistance with PTSD supported by a Purple Heart veteran Marine; a 2 tour OEF meritoriously promoted Sergeant gets lost at the border and with one wrong turns ends up in the Mexico customs lane with no way to turn back. His truck piled high with possessions as he searched housing including his U.S. legally purchased firearms/ ammunition. Not intending to drive into Mexico he explains he is lost. Arrested since 4/1/2014, since incarceration his life has been threatened; sustained a neck wound requiring hospitalization and chained in a 4-point restraint, 26+days. The affect of this unjust incarceration on a decorated combat Marine is despairing. Tahmooressi supported by U.S. Consular Services yet low hope.
Expert Michael Cutler on Thursday, May 22nd, was interviewed by Brian Kilmeade about an important ongoing deplorable situation. U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, is currently being held in a jail in Mexico, after, by all accounts, he accidentally crossed the US/Mexican border with three US issued and permitted firearms in his possession. I wish I had a bit more time, but I think we got to some of the most salient issues.
