I’m putting up a new page on my blog ~ please go and read about our Soldiers and Marines that make up the Leavenworth 10, eight of whom are still in prison.
Also, please read and share:
To My Fellow Patriots, we need your help:
The New York Times printed an article in May of this year entitled “US Tries to Reintegrate Soldiers.”
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/24/world/asia/24reconcile.html?src=mvIn a nutshell, our military is allowing terrorists taken off the battlefield, who have admitted to killing, to sign a Pledge TOGETHER WITH THE VILLAGE ELDERS, that they won’t return to the battlefield, and then the terrorist is returned to his mother! This is outrageous! So the terrorists go home while our Soldiers continue to sit in Leavenworth and our mothers, American mothers, cry themselves to sleep at night! What is even worse is that the entire trial for the terrorist takes 30 minutes while our Soldiers and their families accrue enormous legal fees and travel expenses trying to defend their Hero! This is an outrage!Below is an online petition thatand Veteran Steve Ruggiero of Kelly’s Truth Squad ( ) have put up online. They agree that what is good enough for the terrorists should be good enough for our Sons! We demand our Soldiers in Leavenworth be afforded the same courtesy and compassion that is being shown to the terrorists. Let THE AMERICAN PUBLIC BE THE VILLAGE ELDERS FOR THE 8 REMAINING SOLDIERS WHO MAKE UP THE LEAVENWORTH TEN AND SIGN THE PLEDGE SO THAT THESE SOLDIERS CAN BE RETURNED TO THEIR FAMILIES!
Please click on the link below and sign this petition and forward this all over the universe. Please post this on websites and just keep this moving! To all the Veterans Groups out there, We intend to present this petition to the Secretary of the Army with a Cover Letter from any and all Veterans Groups who will stand with us! Please stand with us in support of your brothers. As pointed out in her article dated May 31st:
“If this exercise dampens the barbecue-season kickoff, good. Maybe it will help Americans see the urgent need for clemency in these cases. And particularly given the mind-boggling fact that the United States has released and granted clemency into tens of thousands of insurgents, including some of the most dangerous fighters our soldiers were sent to fight in the first place.
This is a scolding from a mother whose Son served 4 deployments in this “ war on terror“: This military and this government had better start worrying about appeasing the mothers of the Warriors of this country because if this double standard continues, they won’t have any future Warriors to fight their wars!
With A Mother’s Heart,
The Band of Mothers
Motto: Warriors Come From Warriors!

We will be having another fundraiser for our troops and also providing information about our incarcerated war heroes, along with our current Rules of Engagement. If you have any items to donate, please mail them to: Cari Johnson PO Box 31608 Dayton, OH 45437
Anything to promote your military or patriotic business is welcomed, and families are encouraged to send Cari Johnson any information such as flyers you wish to be sent out. If you are not local but would still like to help, please feel free to send anything you’d like. Local residents, we look forward to seeing you on November 20th for the lighting of the Christmas tree, Santa with the Fire Department, and all of the other events taking place!
You can write these men - just follow the links to get their addresses. They need to know we’re watching their backs and making sure they get fair trials. Too much politiking is going on behind the scenes with many of these cases.
