PUBLISHED BY ILEANA ROS-LEHTINEN FLORIDA’S 27TH DISTRICT CONGRESS REPRESENTATIVE,
“AT LOCAL PINECREST BAKERY SUPPORTING ANDREW TAHMOORESSI, JAILED MARINE IN MEXICO WHO MUST BE FREED”
Pinecrest Bakery pursued the initiative to support Andrew Tahmooressi, Jailed Marine in Mexico Who Must Be Freed, by setting up kids coloring stations at all locations to write Andrew a card while he was held captive.
This small gesture caught the attention of Congress woman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and arrived at Pinecrest Bakery as the meeting ground to meet with South Florida TV news channels, including Fox News, CBS Miami, to extend local awareness to free Sgt. Tahmooressi from captivity and fight for his American rights.
Sgt. Marine Tahmooressi’s family were friends to Pinecrest Bakery through mutual friends, and we just wanted to show our support however we could.
We’re glad you’re back home Andrew, and we hope the word on our page can help to bring more awareness to the seriousness of family, love, government, marines, and soldiers all over the world.
