The Marines are mobilizing.
Marines and their families from across the United States are mounting political pressure and rallying for the release of fellow Marine reservist, Texan Armando Torres, who was kidnapped in a Mexican border city three weeks ago.
The FBI announced this week it was looking for information about the May 14th disappearance of the 25-year-old Iraq War veteran, who is from the border city of Hidalgo, Texas.
Torres’ father and uncle also disappeared from the ranch in Mexico, not far from the U.S. border. All three were apparently ambushed by a group of men who forced them inside a truck and then took off.
Before Torres’ kidnapping hit the mainstream media, the Torres family reached out to fellow Marines through a Facebook group called "Get Our Brother Back."
For the past three weeks, Marines who had served with Torres have written numerous emails to lawmakers, started a White House petition and have contacted dozens of media outlets in an effort to get their “brother” back.
