US Marine Sergeant imprisoned in Mexico

Dear President Obama,
I'm dropping a message to you because I was watching a hearing on C-SPAN on A US Marine Sergeant imprisoned in Mexico for making a wrong turn and knowing he made a wrong turn and making a mistake and still being held for over 6 months. The Marine needs medical treatment and needs to be out of Mexico to get it and needs to stop getting tortured the way he is. NO MARINE DESERVES TO BE TREATED THE WAY HE IS!! Please pick up the phone or your pen and call Mexico and have Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi released today so he can get the help he can and not tortured everyday for making a mistake. Being put in a room alone and tortured everyday isn't punishment it's TORTURE for a hero. So please President Obama I ask you to help this Marine to get released so he can get the medical treatment he needs and back home where he belongs with family and friends. Mexico isn't where he belongs not at all!!! I was in tears watching this. This is a very sad story! His mother is fighting for him with all her heart and I'm shocked that you haven't called her or helped her at all to get this soldier home on US soil so he can be home where he belongs. PTSD is serious and the soldier needs his family & friends before he takes his own life. Please President Obama can you make a call to get this soldier home. Im begging you Please!! I thank you for your time. Be Safe & God Bless!

Sincerely Yours,
Dawn D.
