Lt. Col. Lakin’s Journey –
The following information is from http://www.safeguardourconstitution.com/helpterry.html. I hope you will also consider making a contribution at http://www.terrylakinactionfund.com/ to support Lt. Col. Lakin and his family.
Contact Terry and Plead his Case
Terry arrived safely at Fort Leavenworth to begin serving his six month sentence following his conviction at court-martial.
If you want to contact Terry via mail please follow these guidelines carefully:
Do not use rank or title. Only first name, last name, and registration number (see below).
We can send him letters, greeting cards and post office money orders but nothing else.
Do send any packages, food, magazines, etc.
Send your mail to:
Terrance Lakin #89996
830 Sabalu Road
Fort Leavenworth, KS 66027
Pleading Terry’s Case: Operation Free Dr. Lakin
For those of you who inquired about clemency, please contact MAJOR GENERAL HORST, who was the convening authority for court-martial. MG Horst has the power to suspend or shorten LTC Lakin’s sentence. His email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org His fax number is 202-685-2801. You should call the PAO (Public Affairs Officer), Col. Robert Manning. The phone number to call is 202-685-4899 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 202-685-4899end_of_the_skype_highlighting.
You might remind MG Horst that LTC Lakin was denied the right to evidence to defend himself- i.e. denied discovery and denied the testimony of expert witnesses. Feel free to repeat to him that officers swear an oath to the Constitution- are trained on the unified chain of command and know that they are supposed to question orders that may be illegal. The Army failed LTC Lakin repeatedly when it avoided answering his simple question- is the Commander-in-Chief legally, Constitutionally eligible to command the U.S. Armed Forces? His Congressional delegation failed him too when it could not answer this question.
LTC Lakin enjoyed support from high ranking, retired military officers, Major General Paul Vallely, and Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney and eligibility plaintiffs, CDR Charles Kerchner and Captain Pam Barnett (who both attended his court-martial). LT GEN McInerney had wanted to testify as an expert witness for LTC Lakin but was disallowed by the Judge, COL Lind. Former Presidential candidate, Ambassador Alan Keyes also supported LTC Lakin and was not permitted to testify.
Army asks for mercy from clemency callers

Army public affairs officer Lt. Col. Rob Manning today asked WND readers appealing for clemency for imprisoned “birther” Dr. Terrence Lakin to send their pleas to Lakin’s defense counsel, not to the officer with authority to free Lakin, Maj. Gen. Karl Horst.
“We’re getting a lot of calls,” said Manning, the director of public affairs for the Joint Force Headquarters, National Capital Region.
Manning emphasized clemency requests should be sent to Maj. Matthew Kemkes, Lakin’s defense counsel. Kemkes’ e-mail address is email@example.com.
Manning declined to estimate how many calls he and his secretary had answered.
“I don’t know, but it’s been quite a few,” said Manning.
Lakin backer Margaret Hemenway told WND yesterday that the Army had received 300 calls by 12:30 p.m., even before Manning’s phone number appeared on WND. … Continue Reading
Here’s an important quote from this article:
…This court martial verdict, guilty on all counts, settles nothing. On the contrary it leaves the question in boldface: What could possibly be preventing the president from showing the American people his original, 1961 birth certificate? What remains to be seen is whether there exists any authority, any leader in this whole country with the courage of a Lakin to ask….
In support of Lt. Col. Lakin’s courage in seeking the ‘Truth’ (and as a former In-Flight Tech in the Navy), I urge all who have served or have friends/family in the military to ask the following question of those currently serving.
Brothers and Sisters in the Military, when are you too going to demand Obama establish that he is a Natural Born Citizen, eligible to serve as Commander In Chief?
The military is the only government organization that I continue to have a modicum of respect for and it pains me criticize those serving. And I understand the consequences of challenging Obama’s eligibility directly, but the continuing attacks against our Constitution by the left cannot be allowed to pass without objection in some form or another. Acquiescence is not the only option.
Consider this please. What if every serviceman or woman went to his or her Chaplin, stated their concerns and provided the basic evidence (direct and circumstantial, links, former statements by NPR etc. indicating a Kenyan birth, etc., etc.) that would cause most reasonable persons to have legitimate questions about Obama’s lack of eligibility to serve and issue lawful orders? What if requests were made to each Chaplin instructing them to pass these concerns up the Chain of Command? Would there come a point, a number of requests that would cause the leadership to demand proof of eligibility?
Maybe military leadership could utilize the following provision?
§ 935. Art. 135. Courts of inquiry
(a) Courts of inquiry to investigate any matter may be convened by any person authorized to convene a general court-martial or by any other person designated by the Secretary concerned for that purpose, whether or not the persons involved have requested such an inquiry.
If the Oath to protect the Constitution is not important today, why don’t we just change the oath of allegiance to reflect our current level of commitment?
I, _______, do solemnly swear to protect ME and I will try to defend the Constitution as long as it doesn’t adversely impact the aforementioned ‘ME’.
Remember Lt. Col. Lakin.
Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.

Official Disclosure – Just to be clear, my graphics depict almost all members of the BOPAC Administration as being full of crap. They do not actually look like turds – one needs special ‘full of crap’ glasses to be able to see the core of those who continually feed America BS. I treat everyone equally – when Glenn Beck goes off on those who reasonably question Obama’s eligibility, he gets a half-full of crap depiction.
