Two 63 Year Old Former Marines Walk 300 Miles to Deliver a Message to Obama

Two former Marines in their sixties walked 300 miles in order to deliver a message to Barack Obama concerning Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. The two Marines were joined by a number of supporters who knew their 21 day journey was about to be completed. Terry Sharpe and Allen Brown were joined by supporters on a rainy Thursday morning for the final leg of their journey.

The two former Marines both served in the same battalion in Viet Nam and fought in some of the same battles but did not meet until three weeks ago. Brown saw Sharpe walking down the road and when he heard what he was doing, he decided to join him on the trip to Washington D.C.

All along the way, supporters joined them and would provide them with help or would join them on their walk for some distance. Sharpe and Brown started the day’s walk from the Key Bridge where they were met by police, who informed them that three motorcycles and a squad car would be providing them a police escort.

The Marines named their endeavor the “Free Sgt. Tahmooressi March” and the crowd surrounding them grew as they got nearer their destination.

Quote:
“As Marines we pledged long ago to never leave another Marine on the battlefield, and you have expressed this same sentiment as commander in chief,” said Sharpe. “Our nation owes Sergeant Tahmooressi a debt of gratitude, and you have the ability to repay part of that debt by making one phone call.”

“As the most influential leader in the free world, one call from you to President Enrique Peña Nieto could surely spare Sergeant Tahmooressi and his family any more grief, and bring him home so he can receive the help he needs to allow him to lead a full and productive life,” he said.

The two Marines then held their cell phones above their heads to symbolize their demand that Obama immediately “make the call” to Mexico.

He then added that although their walk to the White House is finished, his fight to have Sgt. Tahmooressi released is far from over.

“This is the end of my and Allen’s journey here, but not the end of my quest to free Sgt. Tahmooressi,” said Sharpe in front of the White House.

When asked how he plans to get home, Sharpe said “I have no idea, but I ain’t walking home.”

“We are in good spirits and have had good people behind us,” said a clearly emotional Brown. “We miss our families.”
After meeting outside the White House the pair traveled down to the Mexican embassy. They were met by a gopher who gave them a line of BS. The two will remain in Washington for a week and will meet Tahmooressi’s mother and will testify in front mof congress on hearings about Tahmooressi. They plan on giving the flags they carried to Tahmooressi once he is freed.

Obama made a big deal about trading 5 terrorists for a deserter because “we leave no one behind.” There is no doubt in my mind that Obama could get him freed if he really wanted to.

By far the worst POS ever to sit in the oval office. So bad its difficult to know where to begin. He could put a litter of kittens in a blender on national tv and still have the backing of the media.

Re: Two 63 Year Old Former Marines Walk 300 Miles to Deliver a Message to Obama

That's awesome. It baffles me why Obama hasn't publicly put pressure on Mexico to either hurry his trial along or let him go. America has enormous leverage with Mexico. We give them millions and millions of dollars, as well as many other forms of aid. I can't think of any good reason for him to sit quietly.
Look at Bo Bergdahl. Obama went out of his way to get him back. And by many accounts Bergdahl is a deserter at best and trader at worst. So was Obama's main purpose for Bergdahl to appease terrorist? Speaking of Bergdahl, what the fuck is the conclusion? They haven't said a thing about him and what they've discovered.

Worst President Ever.

The only guy that seems happy with Obama is Jimmy Carter. At least now he's not the worst president in the twenth century.

Re: Two 63 Year Old Former Marines Walk 300 Miles to Deliver a Message to Obama

I had a friend, a person that I had known for years who lives in The Netherlands. Apparently, over there they love Obummer.

I posted on my FB the photo meme of the five terrorists he traded and a list of all the bad things they have done. I then did one of my anti Obummer posts and said "I curse the day that man was voted into the White House", among other things.

She immediately responded, told me I was a horrible person and she "could not continue to be friends with someone who thinks like I do"

I was like, what the fuck ever, she does not live here, she is not impacted by any of his moronic actions or decisions, yet she is so high and mighty when it came to defending him. Unbelievable the spell he casts over people.

These are men with honor and whose actions speak volumes. Something Obummer can't begin to relate to. If there is nothing in it for him, then he could care less. Which is sad, how simple it would be to get this guy back. He is such a disgrace and disappointment.

It's always Obama's fault.. Then it's going to be 8 years of Hillary's fault. People always need a scapegoat.
