We the undersigned, based on the Military’s recent policy to reintegrate imprisoned Taliban combatants back to their Afghan communities, do agree to vouch for all eight remaining service members who make up the Leavenworth Ten: 1LT Michael Behenna, SGT Evan Vela Carnahan; PFC Corey Clagett, MSG John Hatley, SPC William Hunsaker, SGT Michael Leahy, SFC Joseph Mayo, and SGT Michael Williams;
In addition, the undersigned are aware that these soldiers were tried and convicted of murder for actions they took in a combat zone; that but for this specific combat incident they would not find themselves incarcerated;
Whereas, the undersigned know that these soldiers volunteered to serve their country during a time of war and they provided exceptional service to their country. We are also aware that these soldiers pose no threat to the citizens of this country, would easily adjust to civilian life, and would be welcomed back into our community;
Therefore we dutifully request 1LT Behenna, SGT Evan Vela Carnahan; PFC Corey Clagett, MSG John Hatley, SPC William Hunsaker, SGT Michael Leahy, SFC Joseph Mayo, and SGT Michael Williams be released and reintegrated back into society to rejoin their families. We vouch they will not return to the battlefield once they are freed.
Signed: The American People
