Lorance Lobby Day
You are invited to participate
Washington, DC Lobby Day Itinerary
Sponsored by Uniformed Services League
For the purpose of generating support in Congress for a Presidential Pardon for unfairly imprisoned combat warrior Lt. Clint Lorance.
Unfairly convicted and sentenced to prison for ordering his platoon to open fire on advancing Taliban terrorists. We hope that more Congressman will join the very outspoken Congressman Duncan Hunter in speaking out for a Presidential Pardon. We seek co-sponsors for the “Sense of the House” Resolution supporting a Pardon.
