To all the thousands of Michael supporters,

Just a quick update to let you know that the Government filed their Response to Michael's Petition before the Supreme Court.  Michael's lawyers now have ten days to file a Reply to the Government's Response. The Supreme Court will then set Michael's case for Conference (hopefully by June) and decide whether to grant Certiorari which means a review by the whole Supreme Court.  For the Supreme Court justices to grant Certiorari from the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces would be the first time a military petition has reached this stage - so prayers for discernment for these nine Justices are certainly welcomed.

An encouraging tidbit was that Michael's case was selected by the Supreme Court Blog as the petition of the day for May 1st - http://www.scotusblog.com/2013/05/petition-of-the-day-446/

We ask that you spread this email and please continue to tell Michael's story.  Have your friends and neighbors sign Michael's petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/MBehenna/petition.html .  If they want to further assist, please have them contact their Congressional Representatives and Senators and let them know that Michael has served enough time in prison and deserves the same freedom you and I all enjoy.  To locate your state’s Representative's / Senators click on the following link: http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml

Lastly, Michael will ‘celebrate’ his 30th birthday on May 18th behind the prison walls of Fort Leavenworth.  We’d like Michael to receive no less than 500 birthday cards and well wishes to let him know that despite this being his fifth birthday in prison he is anything but forgotten.  You can mail your cards to:

Michael Behenna  87503

1300 Warehouse Road

Ft. Leavenworth, KS  66027-2304

Bless you all for your support of our son,

Scott & Vicki Behenna
