Hi! My name is Kristina Lade and I am a member of Friends Working
to Free Scott Speicher. You all were so awesome helping us spread the
word about the Vigil held in DC in January 2004 -- we were wondering
if we could ask your help again... We recently learned that Secretary
Rumsfeld has stated the $1 Million dollars that is currently in the
Defense Spending Bill for Fiscal Year 2004 is in jeopardy of being discontinued.
We learned of these intentions via a letter written by Senator Bill
Nelson to The Honorable Secretary Rumsfeld dated March 1, 2004. That
letter can be found here: http://billnelson.senate.gov/newpages/pilot.cfm#
We, Scott's friends, family, and supporters have started a petition
to let the Government know that this will not be tolerated. You can
find this petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/mod_perl/signed.cgi?01171991.
We hope that you will sign it and pass on this information to anyone
else that would be willing to help. We truly need every last signature
we can get. Scott and his family need these signatures. All our heroes
need these signatures!
Also if you get the chance please visit www.operationfreespike.com
and see the new efforts that are being launched to see that Captain
Speicher is found and returned to US soil. There you can print out postcards
and send them to Secretary Powell and President Bush and see Scott's
age progressed photo. There is also a flyer there that can be sent to
any soldiers you know of in Iraq.
Keeping The Faith in Scott!
Thank You and God Bless You Always,
Friends Working To Free Scott Speicher
