Billy is a Army Veteran. He is a true Patriot, who loves our country. He comes from a long line of men who served in the military, including his father and both grandfathers. He was at the Capital on January 6th, alongside thousands of patriots, trying to make a difference. On Feburary 11th at 6am, the FBI arrested Billy at our home, and he has been detained ever since.
He is a political prisoner, who has spent most of his time in solitary confinement. Even worse, starting on the day of President Trumps birthday, he and the other January 6th detainees, were locked in their cells for a week with no calls to family or friends. It's unbelievable that this is happening to a man with no criminal history!
Billy has always been a family man. He knew when he was a kid, that he wanted to be a father. His children have filled him with so much joy. He has always been there for them, so this separation has been very painful for him. We have 6 children between us, ranging from 7 to 23 years old. Though they are not all at home anymore, they have all struggled in their own way with his absense. His 7 year old daughter has been having a lot of emotional breakdowns and has expressed her fear of never seeing her dad again. This has been an unbelievable nightmare for us and we just want him home!
Billy has been a Union Sheet Metal Worker for years. He lost his job due to Covid last year and lost his unemployment benefits when he was arrested. Our home is being sold in a short sale, because I am unable to cover our expenses on my own. This is the first home he ever bought, and has lived here for 18 years. He raised his children in this home and has made many great memories. He is sad to see it go.
We're asking for help with another place to live, past due bills, legal expenses and his commissary(he lost 20 lbs. because he wasn't getting enough food). Also, phone and internet expenses, so he can stay in touch with us. We are grateful for any help we can get. Prayers are greatly appreciated!
Thank you so much,
