Montel Williams, a 22-year military vet, testified today at a House hearing about Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, a U.S. Marine who has been held in Mexico for 184 days. The hearing is also about PTSD and health care for veterans.
Williams gave a moving and impassioned plea for the release of Sgt. Tahmooressi.
@Montel_Williams This is an ABOMINATION! How DARE we keep sending these young people off to die.
