We just wanted to update everyone in regard to Trevor Reed. Tony McCoy reached out to Chris Kiernan, our chairperson, on the morning Trevor Reed was released. Chris shared with the committee that, Tony wanted to thank the committee for all it has done with getting the information out there. On a recent conference call, Tony again wanted to thank everyone that was involved with helping in getting Trevor home. For Tony and his wife this story has a personal connection. Tony’s family as well as the Reed family are overjoyed with the release of Trevor and his safe return home. As of today, Trevor is in San Antonio getting medical attention that is needed. He has been reunited with his family. Tony has asked to keep Trevor and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he recovers. Tony will continue to update us on his progress.
Please see the statement below.
Our committee would like to thank those whom took the time out to help with the cause and to help our committee.
Thank you from all the members of TWU International Veterans Committee.
