Good News About Jeff Hanks

From: IVAW <>
January 11, 2011

Late last night, we learned that Jeff Hanks was not deployed to Afghanistan yesterday as scheduled.

Thank you for the hundreds of emails that you sent to his unit commander, Cpt. Ambrosino.  His email inbox was flooded over the weekend with 2,000 emails!

Our Operation Recovery Team down at Fort Campbell spent all day Saturday delivering copies of the Article 138 redress request to Jeff's Division Command office and the Army Behavioral Health clinic that failed to treat Jeff.  And we distributed flyers to every room of the Barracks on Fort Campbell.

We have yet to learn the full details of the delay of his deployment, but will keep you posted as soon as we learn anything.

Editor's note: I sent the news of the U.S. military wanting to deploy Jeff Hanks, who suffers from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) to every American who is in my Web Address Book on the 8th of January 2011.

One thing we can be sure of is that Jeff is not out of the woods yet.

If you have not yet gotten a chance to email Captain Jason Ambrosino, the commander responsible for denying Jeff Hanks' medical treatment, we encourage you to do so now.

Click here to send him an email.

Editor's note: My apologies for not being able to provide you with the way to send an Email. However, if you contact the above Email address, then they will be able to provide you what you need in order to send an Email. Thank you.

We will be letting you know of our next moves to step up the pressure and make sure that Jeff's chain of command gets the message: No more deployment of traumatized troops!  Soldiers have a right to heal!

You have helped us get this far.  We will let you know what you can do next to keep the momentum going.

THANK YOU! (And stay tuned...)

In Solidarity,

The Operation Recovery Campaign Team
