Beverly PerlsonThe Band of MothersLtr to President Trump:7 February 2018President Donald J TrumpThe White House1600 Pennsylvania Ave NWWashington, DC 20500Dear President Trump,I voted for you and I am so grateful for all the reverence and appreciation you are bringing to our military. Our Troops finally have a Commander-in-Chief worthy of them, and thank you.This is my fourth letter to you regarding Sgt. Derrick Miller, a three-time deployed Soldier who is currently serving a life sentence in Leavenworth. Derrick volunteered for his last deployment, and in his efforts to protect his men and himself, he was ultimately sentenced to life in prison.President Trump, I ask you again to show mercy toward Derrick and free him to go home to his family. Derrick acted to save the lives of his men. It is quite telling that at Derrick’s trial, many of the men who served with him attended and expressed their sadness at his conviction. Soldiers don’t show that kind of loyalty and compassion to their comrades who they believe are murderers. I know this, I raised a Soldier who served 4 deployments with the 82nd in this war.Mr. President, please intervene and release Derrick from the egregious life sentence he is serving. He has been in Leavenworth 8 long years. If a traitor like Bowe Begdahl, who walked away from his brothers on the battlefield, is shown compassion and set free, surely a Soldier who acted to protect his Brothers should also be shown the same compassion and set free.We are so lucky, as a nation, to have such brave men as Sgt. Derrick Miller, who are willing to give their lives to keep us safe and free. We should not abandon them when they take actions on the battlefield in hellish hot zones to protect their Brothers. We should stand by our Sons!With A Mother’s Heart,Beverly PerlsonThe Band of Mothers
