We need your support by signing the petition here.

My U.S. Military Academy (West Point) classmate, LTC Amerine, SF, US Army, needs your help. He’ll never ask for it. But, now is the time for us, as civilians with greater degrees of freedom, to stand up in support of one who defends our freedom.

LTC Jason Amerine, SF, US Army, is a hero. He parachuted into Afghanistan, linked up with future President Hamid Karzai, and helped defeat the Taliban. He was working as part of a small Army team tasked with helping rescue ISIS hostages. Several have been publicly beheaded. Most recently, an American drone strike killed two hostages. LTC Amerine cooperated with Congressman Duncan Hunter to propose a legislative fix, to coordinate the various separate agencies and efforts into a single system to recover hostages. In response, the FBI and its allies retaliated by initiating a criminal investigation of LTC Amerine.

LTC Jason Amerine embodies the West Point values of Duty, Honor, Country and the Cadet Prayer to choose the harder right rather than the easier wrong. In LTC Amerine’s own words, “I have been under criminal investigation for the last four months for whistleblowing to Congress over our completely dysfunctional system for recovering hostages. The FBI formally complained to the Army about me reporting to Congress about their failed efforts to recover Warren Weinstein, Caitlin Coleman and the child she bore in captivity…If I learned nothing in my 22 years of service I learned that we never leave people behind.”

If it was you or someone you personally cared about, you would want LTC Amerine fighting to bring you or your loved one back! Please sign the petition and write your elected officials to give LTC Amerine the Whistleblower Protection he deserves for his courageous selfless service. Sign the petition here.

Please write your Representative and Senators. Here is a copy of the letter I wrote to my Representative and Senators. Hopefully this makes it easy for everyone to cut, paste, and edit their own:

Dear Senator _______:

I respectfully request your help on behalf of LTC Jason Amerine, Special Forces, US Army. In his own words, “I have been under criminal investigation for the last four months for whistleblowing to Congress over our completely dysfunctional system for recovering hostages. The FBI formally complained to the Army about me reporting to Congress about their failed efforts to recover Warren Weinstein, Caitlin Coleman and the child she bore in captivity…If I learned nothing in my 22 years of service I learned that we never leave people behind.”
In a three-branch government, in a system of checks and balances, I ask that you and your colleagues give LTC Jason Amerine, a National Hero, the Whistleblower Protection he deserves for his selfless service.

Sincerely,
Your Name Here
