After exhausting every administrative remedy available to him to obtain proof that President Obama is a natural born citizen and constitutionally eligible to hold the office of President and Commander in Chief of the Army, Lt. Col. Terrence “Terry” Lakin, an Army flight surgeon with 18 years of service, invited his own court martial by refusing to deploy to Afghanistan.
Lakin’s deployment orders required him to produce a copy of his own birth certificate, so he was troubled that Obama has refused to do the same.
He stated, “Reviewing FM 6-22 Army Leadership … grounds me in my belief that I have a duty to submit this concern.”
The values Lakin agreed to live by include, “Loyalty – Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, the Army, your unit and other soldiers. Selfless Service – Put the welfare of the nation, the Army and subordinates before your own. Integrity – Do what’s right – legally and morally.”
He said, “I also have agreed to expect the same from my leaders.”
General George S. Patton stated, “Always do everything you ask of those you command.”
Lakin, who was required to provide his birth certificate to deploy to Afghanistan, expected Obama, as commander in chief of the military, to do the same.
As a result of his refusal to deploy, Lakin was charged with “Missing Movement” a serious crime in the nature of a felony for failing to deploy to Afghanistan, and disobeying a direct order, which include four specifications (separate instances) of this charge.
In September, a military judge ruled Obama’s birth records were irrelevant to the case and that his orders were legal and basically refused Lakin any manner of defense.
Lakin’s court martial trial is scheduled to begin Dec. 14.
