Letter to the Editor Re: Lt. Col. Terry Lakin


January 18, 2017

Dear Editor:

As you and I know, and as many others as I could possibly inform by hyperlinking in my many editorials, LTC Terry Lakin sure as heck got the raw end of the deal on standing tall in regard to the BIRTH CERTIFICATE issue.

Dr. Lakin lost a tremendous amount in standing-up for America: when he should’ve been applauded, he was vilified; when he should’ve been promoted, he was unceremoniously issued a DISHONORABLE DISCHARGE:  the ultimate Scarlet Letter that a Veteran could possibly acquire, tantamount of a verdict of TREASON.

It is not possible to express the shame of having such a disgrace bestowed upon such a stalwart and proud dedicated military surgeon, knowing that history will treat Dr. Lakin with disdain, disregard and disservice.

It is with deep heartfelt anticipation that I ask a favor of you, not that anything will come of it, but I believe we have to try with every ounce of our being; with every aspiration of what makes us Americans.

I believe that we must do everything possible to help one of our own who needs our help.

LTC Terry Lakin is caught up in the whirlpool of time and with each revolution – each passing day – his memory and heroic deed fades from the memory of our country’s chronicle, a story that needs to be told: a defendant who was denied, in a military Court-Martial, his Constitutional right to present a defense in order to receive justice.

We must help Dr. Lakin and his family in their desperate hour of need, for time waits for no one, and the ultimate time to strike a blow for Freedom, for the whole eligibility issue, is by granting a full presidential pardon to LTC Terry Lakin as the first order of our country’s business, an act that would, once again, limelight the eligibility issue: make the news and force the eligibility issue to be talked about.

I believe the meaning of my life comes down to this moment: at one time, when I wore the uniform of our country (just as LTC Terry Lakin did), I put my life on the line, for real, to arrive at this moment in time and space to implore you to re-run my “Open Letter to President Trump” on Friday, January 20, 2017, Inauguration Day.

With Hopeful Expectation,

    Dear Mike Travis,
    Unfortunately, due to somewhat overzealous reasoning challenged individuals out there, I have temporary suspended communicating through the OPOVV website.
    One such individual who bodily threatened me I invited to meet me at a designated time and place very near his IP address: I showed-up but he or she or they did not.
    Anyway, what more can I say or, for that matter, do? It’s really a shame how just a few rotten apples can ruin it for everybody.

    To OPOVV:
    Sir, I tried to contact you via your website but the Captcha did not present a code to enter. Please check your website so myself and others may contact you.

    I for one would not blame “Mr.” Lakin if he NEVER wanted to put on a uniform again. I also served my country honorably,and was denied another nation’s highest honor because it was not “politically correct”. I spent over 40 years hanging my head in disgrace whenever anyone mentioned that war or my brothers who did not come home.
    And now the ——– in Congress (no words I can politely use in print or otherwise) will not attend the inauguration of another honorable man.

    Dear Molly1776Pitcher,
    Thank you for your comment.
    I disagree with your suggestion wholeheartedly.
    If you were illegally charged, blamed and incarcerated for something in which you are entirely innocent, you wouldn’t volunteer to spend one New York minute suffering under the dark cloud of having been DISHONORABLY DISCHARGED from your service from the United States military.
    If you had it within your power to do the right thing, I believe you do it. Everyday Doctor Lakin, his wife and family live under the Obama Lie and the sooner Dr. Lakin can be pardoned and his service records can be expunged from this terrible ordeal the better.
    We owe LTC Terry Lakin for honoring his Oath while so many others stayed silent. He is an American hero and deserves, not only our respect, but also our total support in reinstating his commission in our military.

    We are trying. We feel we must go slowly and keep, for now, under the radar and after the Fraud ticks off DJT by pardoning enough criminals, travesties and real traitors, he will go after the Fraud by slowly and carefully exposing him.
    I have been told by very longstanding, pro Terry Lakin sources, that we have a key person on the Trump team but to bide our time for a little while longer.
