National commander calls on all American veterans to take action

KANSAS CITY (August 28, 2014) —The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is demanding the immediate release of U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who has now suffered 150 days in a Mexican jail.

VFW National Commander John Stroud is asking not only for the support of the 1.9 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliaries, but for the entire military and veteran community to rally for one of their own. VFW is asking all American veterans to take action by flooding the White House with calls and emails asking President Obama to secure Tahmooressi’s release, immediately. Call (202) 456-1111 and click here to send an email.

In addition, Stroud is asking veterans to voice their displeasure with the lack of a resolution directly to the Embassy of Mexico in Washington. Call (202) 728-1600 and click here to send an email.
