I am BEGGING you to help by doing a story, spreading the word, helping to get my marine and
his wife SOME HELP in this matter........I implore you..........
SGT. Greg A. Dague, U. S. Marine since enlisting in 1999, and his newlywed wife as of Sept.
24, 2005, looked only upon getting married and having the future lay before them, together, in holy matrimony. That
is until the State Dept and Immigration decided otherwise.
Sgt Dague has served two tours in Iraq, his last being 6 months at the US Embassy Baghdad, Iraq,
which he VOLUNTEERED for, ending in Sept. He returned to Lima, Peru to finish his 3 year stint with the U. S. Marine
MSG Battalion which guards our American Embassies on foreign soil. All MSG's MUST be single marines, male or female
and pass the MSG school and training in that specialized area.
Sgt. Dague, upon being released for serving in the MSG Battalion for 3 years, married Peruvian
National, Ada Noelia Rosales-Acosta on Sept. 24, 2005. They thought the world lay before them. Sgt. Dague felt
he could continue to face the challenges of war and the USMC with his new bride by his side. He is due to return for
his 3rd tour to Iraq later this year.
Sgt. Dague was re-stationed to Camp Pendleton where he now works with the Air Wing. Unfortunatley
for the newlywed couple, they have found it impossible to be together thanks to the same State Dept. that Sgt. Dague provided
his expertice training to protect and serve.
Mrs. Dague was due to have her interview today in front of the U.S. State Dept. to procure her
Visa to come to America to reside with her husband. She had a flight out of Peru for tomorrow; but all that is a mute
point now. The U.S. State Dept. in Peru denied her visa at this mornings interview. The couple has spent thousands
of dollars in securing all the proper paperwork necessary for their wedding in Peru and for her coming to the U.S. There
have been MOUNTAINS of paperwork. By denying Mrs. Dague a visa, the State Dept. has denied the loving, military couple
to be together for many months to come. They missed their first Thanksgiving and now will miss their first Christmas
as a married couple, their first new year and so much more. It will cost much more money to reapply without the certainty
again of getting the Visa approved.
Sgt. and Mrs. Dague have paid a very high price for merely loving one another and wanting to
be UNITED together. Here is an American Marine who has served his country, his Government in the utmost ways he could,
ALL VOLUNTARILY, and the United States Government cannot even repay this 27 year old marine enough to permit he and his wife
to be together in AMERICA.
American has THOUSANDS of immigrants who have entered this Nation illegally, who commit crimes
once they are here, who have crimes committed against them. Here is an American Military Marine who can't even enjoy
the blessed God Given right to have his spouse, whom he loves with all his heart, and she him, together in the same land that
he has vowed TWICE to defend. Sgt. Dague will continue to work and to fulfill his duties and oath to this United States
of America, all the while his Country will be turning their backs on him, spitting, once again, in the face of one of America's
How sad is this? A man who loves his country and people enough to VOLUNTEER for the warzone
and some of the most dangerous duty but is REFUSED the right to have his WIFE join him in his HOMELAND?
SOMETHING IS DRASTICALLY WRONG HERE.
With Much Love and Many Prayers
