Happy Birthday Bradley! Write him a letter of support!
Let Bradley know you care! Write him a letter of support for his 25th birthday – his third behind bars.
By the Bradley Manning Support Network. December 6th, 2012.
Military whistle-blower Bradley Manning will turn 25 on December 17th. It will be his third birthday in prison, and by the time his court martial begins it will have been almost three years in prison: one year of which in the Quantico marine brig, where he was held in solitary confinement against the recommendations of mental health professionals. His trial is scheduled to start next March, and he needs our support. Please take a few minutes to mail Bradley a birthday message, and to send a gift to his Defense Fund.
Bradley can receive mail at the following address:
Commander, HHC USAG
Attn: PFC Bradley Manning
239 Sheridan Ave, Bldg 417
JBM-HH, VA 22211

Bradley’s lawyer David Coombs recent spoke publicly for the first time. He said that Bradley is one of the smartest, most caring young men he’s ever met, and he also talked about Bradley’s future dreams and goals:
“And [Bradley] told me that his dream would be to go to college, go into public service, and perhaps one day, run for public office. And I asked Brad, why would he want to do that? And he said, ‘I want to make a difference. I want to make a difference in this world.'”
Please take some time before December 17 to show Bradley that you are thinking of him, and appreciate his efforts to hold US government officials accountable by informing the American public. In addition to mailing him a birthday message and donating to his Defense Fund, you can also take a photo holding a “Happy birthday Bradley Manning!” sign and e-mail it to [email protected]. We will compile photos to share on our website, and send them to Bradley as well.
