Easter is right around the corner – and while this year we might not get to enjoy the company of extended family and friends like we normally would due to COVID-19, I’m still looking forward to this special day.
Even though church services may be virtual and kids Easter egg hunts might be cancelled, there’s still so much to be thankful for.
But as we prepare for Easter Sunday, I can’t help but think about the MARSOC Raiders -- GySgt Josh Negron, GySgt Danny Draher, and SOIDC CPO Eric Gilmet.
You see, this might be the last year that Josh, Danny, and Eric get to enjoy these moments for years to come, because they’re worried that they might be sent to prison for a crime they didn’t commit.
That’s why I have one simple request.
This Easter won’t be the same for these three husbands, fathers, and elite Special Operators.
After sacrificing over 20 years each for our freedom, they’re being railroaded by overzealous prosecutors and career minded commanders.
Never mind that aside from the completely bogus charges they face, the prosecution tried to deny Josh, Danny, and Eric their First Amendment Rights AND tried to offer Josh a lesser charge if he provided false testimony against his combat brothers Danny and Eric.
And while nothing can make up for lost time with your family, I can tell you that it will mean the world to them to know that they have the support of thousands of American patriots like yourself.
Even just sharing this post saying,“We’re praying for you!” or “Thank you for your service!” will go a long way in giving them hope during the difficult times they’re facing.
So, I hope I can count on you to wish the MARSOC Raiders a Happy Easter, leave them a note of support, and SHARE our message across your own social media platforms to help get the word out about the injustices being done to these warriors.
Thank you for your continued support for UAP and our Warriors.
