WASHINGTON – On April 22, Army officials filed formal charges, consisting of the military equivalent of two serious felonies, against LTC Terrance “Terry” Lakin.

Charge I stated, on April 12, Lakin intentionally missed his US Airways Flight Number 1123 from Baltimore/Washington International Airport to Charlotte, North Carolina in order to deploy for a Temporary Change of station in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Charge II cited two specifications of Lakin, “having knowledge of a lawful order issued by LTC William Judd, to report to the office of his Brigade Commander, Col. Gordon R. Roberts,” and “having knowledge of a lawful order issued by Col. Gordon R. Roberts,” orders which were his duty to obey, failed to obey those orders by “wrongfully not reporting as directed.”

Lakin, an Army doctor, who has served since 1993, stated he would be happy to deploy to Afghanistan if President Obama would release his long-form birth certificate to prove his constitutional eligibility to hold the office of President and Commander in Chief.

As an officer, Lakin took an oath swearing, “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter, so help me God.”

While Obama continues to avoid producing any evidence he is legally holding the office of President of the United States, Lakin is standing behind his oath, willing to face court-martial on these charges and imprisonment, to obtain the evidence that will prove once and for all whether Obama holds his office lawfully.
