USL in the News – Seal Chief Gallagher gets support from Uniformed Services League

Reprinted from Zenith News:

By Glenn Ryt, June 30, 2019 Zenith News Exclusive

“It ought not to be a crime to shoot the enemy in combat” says Lt. Colonel Dennis Gillem, USA (Ret.). The Vietnam war veteran and host of a weekly talk show reaching 150,000 veterans and their friends, is hoping for a “not guilty” verdict for U.S. Navy Seal Chief Edward Gallagher this week at his court martial in San Diego. “ Chief Gallagher has done the same thing many of us have been forced to do in combat – make a split-second decision with real life or death consequences for fellow Americans in uniform” said Colonel Gillem, who is leading a nationwide effort to support unfairly accused combat warriors.
Col. Gillem spoke last year at a “Restore Freedom” Congressional Lunch and Symposium at the House Rayburn Office Building calling out to “restore freedom to combat warriors who fought for ours.” Four Congressmen and nearly 30 Congressional staffers attended, where Colonel Gillem and representatives of the event organizer, Uniformed Services League, presented 25,000 petitions supporting a Presidential Pardon for some of those whom the group calls “unfairly accused combat warriors.” Four Congressmen spoke at the event last April 17 including Congressmen Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Scott Perry ((R-PA).
Gohmert and Perry have been outspoken in support of unfairly accused combat warriors such as Chief Gallagher. Both are involved in helping to organize a Congressional Caucus to focus attention on cases such as Chief Gallagher, according to our sources in Washington, DC, a move strongly supported by Col. Gillem and Uniformed Services League.
At the top of Colonel Gillem’s list to “restore freedom” to is Chief Eddie Gallagher. Col. Gillem, sent a letter of support to Gallagher and his attorney, Timothy Parlatore.
The letter from the Colonel asks Chief Gallagher to be the keynote speaker at a future “Restore Freedom” Congressional Lunch and Symposium in Washington, DC, saying that their attendance would turn the event into a “Celebrate Gallagher” function. The message from Uniformed Services League also offers a substantial donation to help defray Gallagher’s legal expenses, and airfare and lodging for him, his wife and his attorney to speak at a third Restore Freedom Symposium.
What happens if Chief Gallagher is found guilty at the court martial and his attorney begins the appeal process? Col. Gillem’s letter to Chief Gallagher makes clear: he and Uniformed Services League stand with Gallagher, win or lose, and invite his wife to come speak at Restore Freedom in Washington, DC if he is unable to.
Colonel Gillem was especially pleased to learn that Zenith News will dispatch as their reporter, a fellow U.S. military Vietnam war veteran, Charles Benninghoff, a PBS boat captain who inserted Navy SEALs into combat ambushes in the Rung Sat Special Zone south of Saigon in 1967 and who helped defend the Naval supply lines to the surrounded Marines at Khe Sahn in 1968.
Gillem a member of the USL Retired Military Officers Advisory Board, was one of the featured speakers at the 2017 Restore Freedom Congressional Luncheon and Symposium in Washington, DC.

Sense of Congress Resolution Regarding Presidential Pardon of Lt. Clint Lorance

Restore Freedom: Will you stand up for Imprisoned Warriors?

Speakers for the April 17 “Restore Freedom” Day. Congressmen Scott Perry and Louie Gohmert have joined colleague Duncan Hunter to speak to the group at the House Rayburn Bldg., while the others shown here will speak at both the day evens and the evening’s conference and rally.

Join us on Tuesday – take your pick when you want to start – breakfast & capitol tour, or lunch and briefing in DC or Freedom Leadership Conference in Chantilly VA at 7:30 pm

RESTORE FREEDOM baseball caps will be given out free to those who join us in DC and only $5 for those who attend evening Freedom Leadership Conference.

Operation Restore Freedom is in full swing with a day packed with activities on Friday but how about you? Can you take time out this week to join in some part of what is scheduled for Tuesday? It shocks people to learn this but the truth is, there are American combatants being held as prisoners, not in a foreign country but right here in America at Fort Leavenworth prison, sentenced because they did their duty but under the “rules of engagement” of President Barack Obama, they were locked up.

The details are all different.

But what they have in common is that like Lt. Clint Lorance, sentenced to 19 years in prison for ordering his men to open fire on advancing Taliban terrorists who would not stop as ordered, it is wrong what happened to them. They should all be pardoned by President Trump. All of us should speak out for them. We need you with us for all or some part of Tuesday, RESTORE FREEDOM DAY.

Our previous two posts tell you the details about Tuesday. We were pleased to announce that three U.S. Congressmen have replied to our invitation message hand delivered to them all on Thursday and with a “Dear Colleague” invitation letter sent by Congressman Duncan Hunter the previous week. The three Congressmen are Scott Perry, Louie Gohmert and Duncan Hunter.

You have the choice of joining us early on Tuesday to include breakfast in DC at the House Rayburn Bldg. ground floor cafeteria, or at lunch time at the House hearing room we have reserved and the followup briefings that include three U.S. Congressmen as previously reported.

Or you can join us as a $50 host committee member for dinner at Bob Evans Restaurant (dutch treat) at 6 PM (any donation of any amount for those who spent the day in DC with us). Or come to the “Restore Freedom” Rally at the Freedom Leadership Conference.

Those who can come to the DC briefing get this band new RESTORE FREEDOM baseball cap to wear during the briefing. If we have leftover hats they’ll be available to conference attendees (who are asked to pay $5 at the door) for only $5 (below cost) as long as supplies last.
