The first lady wrote a compelling appeal on July 31 for citizens to urge mayors nationwide to sign on to the Mayors Challenge to End Veterans Homelessness. I agree and urge Michelle Obama to appeal to the president to urge the Mexican authorities to send home our decorated Marine, Andrew Tahmooressi, whose family lives in Weston.

While 172 mayors have signed the challenge for veterans, more than 133,000 Americans have signed the petition to the White House for Sgt. Tahmooressi’s release.
