FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
from the Terry Lakin Action Fund
(Apr. 23, 2011) — On or around April 18 notification was sent to MAJ Matthew Kemkes that LTC Lakin’s pleas for clemency were denied and the findings of the court martial were confirmed.
- Loss of Pay
- Loss of Pension
- Discharge from the Army
Terry and his family want to thank the thousands of individuals who assisted with letters and emails of support to the convening authority. Many active and retired military as well as parents of those serving sent clear, caring statements of support for Terry’s efforts.
The standard process for Terry now is the possibility of two stages of appeals before he is formally discharged from the Army. This process could run out a year or more.
Terry’s release date has been determined (mid May) based on good behavior but we are waiting to make a final announcement pending some remaining details and procedural decisions. Please check the TerryLakin.com site for updates on the exact date.
It is important, as requested, the those concerned about Terry, his family, and his case, continue to support his family as his employment status is unknown.
