#bringbackourmarine #marineheldinmexico SHARE/RT - ACTION ALERT: PLEASE call your congressman/woman and ask them to support HRes. 620 in solidarity with Andrew's family and to support Chairman Salmon's efforts on #ptsdhearing - THEN CALL EVERY HOUSE REP FROM UR STATE

#bringbackourmarine #marineheldinmexico all - much is happening. I know it may not seem like it. I can assure you that there is. This is a complicated diplomatic matter. Those who have been working on this have kept very close control over information for good reason - they have no obligation to relay everything they do to the general public. I've said the time to judge our Government's response is after Andrew comes home.
I am satisfied with the State Department's response. I fully support the strategy of Chairmen Royce and Salmon from House Foreign Affairs Committee - they all deserve our support.
Please read HRes. 620. I believe that it outlines a cogent position that has been taken from the outset by many in our Government.
The time to address any deficiencies in our Government's reaction is after Andrew is back in the U.S.
Conflating issues that have nothing to do with Andrew's case is not helpful. Trying to use the frustration felt by so many to gain traction on other political issues. Andrew's case MUST stand alone as an "American issue."
Keep praying, keep shining light on PTSD. MOST OF ALL KEEP CALLING YOUR CONGRESSMAN/WOMAN AND ASK THEM TO STAND WITH US ON HRES 620 - it is the ONLY piece of legislation the FAMILY has supported.

#bringbackourmarine #marineheldinmexico NONE OF US have the right to disrespect the wishes of the #Tahmooressi family. NO ONE has the right to be more angry than they are. Andrew served his country with distinction - he has told his fellow marines he DOES NOT want to be "rescued." He wants us to maintain pressure on the Mexican system to handle his case expeditiously to its inevitable conclusion.
This protest planned for this weekend is entirely unhelpful, will be entirely INEFFECTIVE and will do nothing more than make the job of those in our Government, including the State Department (who have been an incredible support to the family) and Chairmen Salmon and Rice who have worked tirelessly for Andrew's release and who have called a hearing for October 1 before the Foreign Relations Committee.
I know we are all frustrated. To anyone who would disrespect the wishes of the family, I would say simply, HOW DARE YOU.

The family would like to make clear that we believe any plan to shut down border crossings is not an acceptable way to protest Andrew's confinement. Demonstrations like this are not legal, not effective and needlessly inconveniences and endangers others, including hard working law enforcement officers and citizens on both sides of the border. The family also believes plans to "rescue Andrew out of prison" would be considered an act of violence and subject many including Andrew to probable harm.

PLZ SHARE!!! folks we have an ACTIVE DUTY #marine who needs help saving his son's sight. We have a doc lined up, we need a little more help.

@hannahstormespn Hannah Storm, Montel Williams, father of three daughters, standing right there beside you and proudly so. Every word was right. I do think we have to broaden the conversation a bit to a wider cultural predisposition toward violence but as it pertains to the NFL, you were dead on. A generation of young players got the message u dnt get fired for the behavior, you get fired for the video thereof. That's a dangerous message.

ESPN's Hannah Storm questioned the NFL's integrity and its relationship with female fans during a passionate monologue before the league's slate of games kicked off on Sunday. During a poignant moment on at the conclusion of "SportsCenter,"...

#ChardonSTRONG #oneheartbeat way to bounce back and win Friday night. WE HONOR THOSE WE HAVE LOST BY SUITING UP AND SHOWING UP. We do so without fear and with love and hope i our hearts - that is how those you lost lived their lives. I can imagine that there were some angels looking down on that game smiling. Keep smiling, keep focussed on the hope in what's next, not in the tragedy of the past. Those you lost are best honored with hope. You are safe, you are loved, we're all right here right beside you.
