You’re right. Hard to call a man crazy when he works out of the Pentagon and has been responsible for the health and well-being of General Casey’s flight crew.
Here’s a quick summary. Go to the American Patriot Foundation’s site (Safeguard Our Constitution) to see his extensive CV and other information.
- Lieutenant Colonel Terrence (“Terry”) Lakin
- 18-year highly decorated veteran
- Served in Honduras, Bosnia, El Salvador, Korea, and Afghanistan.
- Chief of Primary Care – Pentagon’s Health Clinic
- Lead Flight Surgeon – responsible for Army Chief of Staff General Casey’s pilots/air crew
- Highest ranking active duty officer to challenge proof of eligibility.
- Had been asking for proof for over a year – no response.
He was notified in late February about his second deployment to Afghanistan and the need for him to provide “copies of his birth certificate.”
This week he was due to deploy but he refused and went to work as usual.
Press release by Margaret Hemenway explaining what happened next.
Army doctor Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin yesterday [12th] met with his brigade commander, Col. Gordon R. Roberts, who proceeded to read LTC Lakin his Miranda rights, and who informed LTC Lakin he had the “right to remain silent” because LTC Lakin is about to be charged with serious crimes.
LTC Lakin had previously been ordered in writing to report yesterday to Ft. Campbell, KY and then on to deploy for his second tour of duty in Afghanistan. Lakin refused to obey these orders and instead came to work yesterday morning at the Pentagon. Late yesterday afternoon he was confronted by his brigade commander.
Before the meeting was over, LTC Lakin’s Pentagon Access Pass had been revoked, and his laptop computer was set to be confiscated.
The message to LTC Lakin is clear; through official channels, he was informed yesterday that he will shortly be court-martialled for crimes (specifically, missing movement and conduct unbecoming an officer) that for others has led to lengthy imprisonment at hard labor.
No way can they afford to hold a court-martial – too many people are aware of what’s happening. And then there’s the simple question of why the Pentagon would go to such lengths if there wasn’t something to it.
LTC Lakin has been asking for answers for a year – all the while still working at the Pentagon – all the while treating Pentagon workers and servicemembers, including the folks ultimately responsible for safety of the #1 Army man.
And he was treating them right up to the day he was arrested.
How can they claim he went crazy?
How would that reflect on the Pentagon?
The simple fact they arrested him despite how insane it would look proves they’re hiding something.
And how crazy is spending thousands of dollars of American taxpayer money on a court martial vs barry spending $20?

Seeking out public office, especially the highest in the land, Mr President, means you must uphold the Constitution and confirm your eligibility.
President Obama, I ask you to respect and uphold the Constitution. Be transparent, and show your honesty and integrity. Release your original, signed birth certificate –if you have one — thus proving your birth on American soil, and thus assure the American People you are lawfully eligible to hold the office of the presidency and serve as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.
The Constitution matters.
The truth matters.
