Two Marine Corps veterans are walking nearly 300 miles to Washington, D.C., in support of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, a Marine Jailed in Mexico.
Lance Cpl. Terry Sharpe called into â€œOn The Recordâ€ tonight, reporting that he is about 100 miles from the White House and expects to reach it in seven days.
Once he and his walking partner, Allen Brown, arrive, they intend to deliver a verbal message to President Barack Obama.
â€œI want to tell the president to make that call, Iâ€™m bringing a phone to him [â€¦] Free Sgt. Tahmooressi,â€ Sharpe said.
Marine Corps veterans tired of seeing fellow Marine Andrew Tahmooressi stuck in Mexican prison are traveling nearly 300 miles by foot to Washington, D.C., to tell President Obama to do whatever he has to do to get Mexico â€œto turn our Marine loose.â€
Marine Corps veteran Terry Sharpe is 63 years old and began walking the 287 miles from his home in Summerfield, North Carolina, to Washington, D.C., two weeks ago to raise awareness about Tahmooressi, who has been in a Mexican prison since March.
â€œI just got tired of nothing being done,â€ Sharpe told the reporters on Monday as he rested after eleven full days of walking. â€œWhat Iâ€™m doing is trying to keep Sergeant Tahmooressi in the media.â€
