    Kristoffer Lewandowski faces life in prison for treating his PTSD with marijuana.

    UPDATE July 15, 2015: While he could still face charges in a military court, U.S. Marine Corps veteran Kristoffer Lewandowski no longer faces potential life imprisonment under multiple felony charges for possession of marijuana, which his wife insists he was growing to treat severe post-traumatic stress disorder.

    According to the Free Kris Facebook page, Lewandowski was extradited from California to Oklahoma on July 9. Four other inmates being transferred alongside the veteran were injured during an accident that supporters called an act of deliberate violence. But good news came on Wednesday, when Ricardo Pereyda, an organizer from the Weed For Warriors project, announced victory on a Change.org petition: “Kris has been released from jail, all felony charges have been dropped, and the remaining charges will be transferred to veterans court. It’s thanks to the outpouring of support from people like you that this was able to happen.”

    Lewandowski’s story went viral thanks to widespread coverage in independent media, including MintPress News, which led to almost 20,000 signatures on the petition demanding his freedom. Another post on Facebook credited the assistance of Kansas lawyer Sarah Swain, who drove to Oklahoma to defend the veteran pro-bono.

    GERONIMO, OK –— A veteran of America’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan now faces life in prison for his attempts to treat his post-traumatic stress disorder with medical marijuana. His wife is pleading with the courts and media for leniency, fearing incarceration will take a father away from his children.

    U.S. Marine Corps veteran Kristoffer Lewandowski served three tours of duty, including service in Iraq and Afghanistan. Like at least 13% of Gulf War war veterans, Lewandowski suffers from PTSD and, also like many other veterans, he’s used medical marijuana to alleviate his symptoms. But Oklahoma, where he originally lived with his wife Whitney and three children, has some of the harshest penalties for cannabis in the United States, and only legally protects limited use of CBD oil for medical purposes.

    The Lewandowski’s problems began in June of last year, when police were called to deal with an apparent domestic dispute that resulted from a flare up of his PTSD symptoms. When a search of his home turned up six marijuana plants, police and the local media treated it as a major bust.

    “With children present this is a bad situation gone worse for the whole entire family,” Comanche County Sheriff Kenny Stradley told Oklahoma’s KSWO.

    But Whitney Lewandowski painted a very different picture of her husband in an exclusive interview with Truth In Media’s Barry Donegan.

    “They’re trying to use me as a victim and to make it look worse on his case,” Lewandowski told Donegan. “My husband has absolutely never laid his hands on me ever. He is not an abusive man, ever … quite the opposite. He is extremely doting.”

    According to his wife, Kristoffer Lewandowski has never been offered domestic violence treatment or even drug rehabilitation by the state, but only jail time and a potential lifetime prison sentence. He sought out cannabis as a way to cut back on his ingestion of pharmaceutical drugs. “He was taking 13 pills a day, and it was just killing his liver. He was having all these issues with his body and he just wanted to try something more natural to just see if he could do without that many pills a day,” she said.

    Research shows that marijuana smoking is safe for the lungs, and recent federal changes even allow Veterans Affairs doctors to prescribe medical pot for PTSD, but only in states that already have laws in place recognizing the plant’s anxiety-reducing and other healing properties.

    Free on bail, the family moved to California where Kristoffer easily obtained access to legal, medical marijuana. But last month, undercover police surprised Lewandowski with a guns drawn raid at his children’s preschool, leaving him in a cell awaiting extradition to Oklahoma. Supporters of the Lewandowski family created a petition asking for Kristoffer’s freedom and a Free Kris Facebook page, but GoFundMe recently shut down a crowdsourced legal defense fund.

    Lewandowski’s struggle echoes another case highlighting the outrageous charges marijuana users and producers can face. Last year, 19-year old Jacob Lavoro, a resident of Round Rock, Texas, faced life in prison for making pot brownies, but ultimately accepted a plea deal for 7 years probation after protests and a global outcry on social media forced the state to reduce his charges.

        We are all in danger when our government can lock good men in jail for minor offenses, dangerous to no one, when shooters roam our cities and our president wants to bring refugee terrorists into our country.

      • gene alderson

        How many of the people calling for punishment ever served, If he is guilty of anything he should get probation, I really hate ARM CHAIR Patriots, signed Army Vet , during the Vietnam war , I would estimate at least 50 % of the soldiers smoked pot, or if in Germany hash, yeah , put us all in jail. and exactly how would that make it a better world ?

        • Joseph Edward Bodden

          well, I imagine if they jailed all servicemen that use pot, our military would only be one third as large…

      • gene alderson

        Well crowd, since we are way past the statute of limitations, this draftee in 1971, in our VW bug with my wife and daughter drove down the main street of Muskogee smoking a joint, the world did not end, I am still healthy after quitting around 30. The safety of the people was never in doubt, it was weak nasty Mexican weed, not like the good stuff we got in Key West, about 75 % percent of our unit smoked pot. So much for the health and safety risks of pot, the only real risk is the oppressive government. Banning alcohol did not work, it just helped a lot of criminals make a lot of money, the same goes for pot. They now have drug tests for people, George Orwell was right about the government, they listen to your phone calls and read your e-mails. 1984

        Sometimes justice does amount to justice……this guy is a threat to no one……and the military should follow suit and drop ALL remaining charges……I don’t care if he was on active duty or not……I would rather he be calm and cool when suffering from PTSD……haven’t we seen enough of our sons and daughters kill themselves or end up in jail or prison because they can’t find anything that will calm their minds after what they have seen…….every generation of War has used some substance to calm their minds after being introduced to the atrocities one human can perpetrate on another……one of the first wars in this great country The Civil War its aftermath brought a sharp rise in morphine use……WWI and WWII had similar results and most sought alcohol……after the Vietnam War cannabis was seen as the go to for helping soldiers cope and relax the visions that often haunt them……what is more important a failed and destructive ideal of prohibition in ALL instances or the life of saving who was willing to give their very life for your freedom……it really is that simple…….

          THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. And the reason Gofund or whatever STOPPED the fund raiser was because he had a domestic violence charge against him (recall he chased his wife with a knife.) They served him his out papers from the USMC while he was in jail. I think they were done with him. And yes, UCMJ ACTION should be taking place.

        • Steven321123

          Maybe serving 3 tours affects some people more than it does others. Instead of locking him up and throwing away the key, why don’t we do that thing Republicans are always talking about and actually trying to help this vet out. You guys are just looking for excuses to look down on somebody so you can feel morally superior.

        Folks, you are missing the point here, it is not that the government was grateful, it was that conservatives are mean unrelenting and that is why he is in prison. Another more liberal state would not have even ticketed him, some it is even legal!.

        • I am a Conservative, you are barking up the wrong tree in many cases.

          Democrats are ALSO doing this and MUCH worse to cannabis patients.

          My advice for anyone who NEEDS to use cannabis? Move to a legal state until yours wakes the heck up, that would have been my advice to him the moment he was out of the military.

          • Mother Hen

            He wasn’t OUT of the military yet. He opted to do all this BEFORE he was granted his final papers, as he was served them WHILE he was in Jail. I wish we could get the transcripts, because I for one would like to know ALL of what happened.

        I feel sorry for this veteran who gave his life for a fake war. I wish this country would wake up and prosecute W. Bush and Chaney for lying to the world about Saddam having WMD’s. The Va wants to fill this man full of poison pills. It makes me sick to my stomach. I have a hunch that it will be cheaper to kill these veterans with an over dose of opiates and benzos than to let them have access to marijuana.

        • It’s cannabis, and yes, we should all be able to take what we need to live what is left of our lives in peace and with less pain.

        Its relieving to see some people here see how corrupt and disgusting this is. I am a marine too and I hate having to take pills when a simple plant does far better with less damage to my health. Headlines like this make me regret my service. Those same people who would condemn THC are the same ones who drink alcohol yet fail to see the illogic with such judgment. So what is this guy suppose to do to treat the PTSD? drink? take more pills? Only in AmURica land of the “free” do Marines serve their country and are then jailed for doing something on their own “free” time which isn’t harming anyone. This is absolutely sickening.

      • HairyHerry

        I’m in Oklahoma. This state has some of the most ridiculous laws (and legislators making them) on the planet. Governor Mary also drinks too much of the wrong Kool-Aid and carelessly passes some of the most stupid of them as submitted to her, complete with Emergency Clauses when such “emergencies” don’t actually exist. I never again will vote for her! I am also sick of the specific OHP troop causing motorists issues at the Colorado line on US 287, especially with vehicles with elderly occupants who can barely deal with the hot, arid climate there while it’s being searched through and through to find NOTHING! This state should have legalized medical marijuana long ago, and I’m signing the petition as I don’t want my tax $$ going to something totally useless as this situation would merit. Furthermore, I’m with those who opinionated that the family should move out to one of the legal pot states. At least where I live, few tornadoes lurk. They’re a convenient means to divert an Okie’s attention span.

        • You and all Oklahomans have three options:

          -Run for office – change from within

          -Rally to change the laws that are 20 or more years behind

          -Move to a legal state and work from there to improve and protect the access of all patients

          active duty marine…using illegal drugs…if he wasn’t on active duty there would be no story, and he wouldn’t be facing punishment in a military court (UCMJ). It’s a nice cover up for an active duty/guard/reserve guy who used an illegal substance while being bound by the UCMJ.

              Missing the point he was still in the military. still bound by UCMJ, and still a active duty soldier until that date elapsed. There’s no middle ground here your in, your in.

      • rocket9244

        he was growing pot where his kids lived. that is illegal and child endangerment. but smoking pot it is a totally different thing. maybe fine him a few grand for growing weed and probation for a year. then give him jail time if he endangers his kids again. as long as he smokes it where his kids cant come in contact with the second hand smoke, he should be allowed to smoke it. easier solution, do your probation and then get out of that state and move to wherever it is legal. then again, why all the attention about iraq/afghan soldiers with ptsd when there are millions who ” suffer” from that ” disease”? what about vets of other wars and normal everyday people?

        • Shogun

          growing pot was endangering his kids? really? so i guess if his wife was growing some tomato plants, that would be endangering the kids as well? please explain to me how someone growing a plant in their home, is endangering their kids? so i guess everyone who has any kind of plants growing in their house should be arrested?

          • HairyHerry

            Actually, to be truthful, if it’s a MonSatan patented veggie, it could endanger the kids, but with MonSatan in the money pockets of our useless politicians, well – you can guess the rest.

            • Shogun

              yes true, word to the wise, stay far far away from monsatan. i just dont see how people can say simply growing a marijuana plant is endangering your children. its no different than any other plant.

              • KEVIN

                yes it is. I’m not against the use of Cannabis and growing it, but it most certainly is NOT the same. Cannabis contains THC, which is psychoactive. other plants like the tomato plant is food. there’s a difference.

                • HairyHerry

                  But my point is quite simple… Something GMO is likely not going to be beneficial to your health. You will say that THC is bad for one’s health – right? I’m saying the same from something truly GMO which a multinational corporation that created Agent Orange will likely have an awful result, given time. It’s a matter of where the $$ goes!

                • Doug

                  Excuse me, but are you aware that a tomato plant can kill you if you eat the leaves? Cannabis cannot kill you, no matter how it is ingested. There are even house plants that are deadly to humans and animals. And by the way…Cannabis is food. Try doing a little research before you spout off Mr. Know It All!

                    hmm…eating the LEAVES of a tomato (i like the fruit itself) plant or EATING cannabis, haven’t done that yet. of course i toke plenty of cannabis, but i have yet to consume it i wonder what percentage of people do eat either of those?

                    i never said Cannabis could kill you btw. and i’m not against it’s legalization either, so maybe you could try not to call me childish names.

                • Shogun

                  okay, so please explain to me how having a cannabis plant is dangerous! im assuming your response is going to be “well what if your kids eat the buds and get high”, well that wont happen, marijuana needs to be heated up to cause decarboxylation, only then is marijuana psychoactive when eaten. you can eat a marijuana plant and not get high, it needs to go through that chemical reaction to get you high from eating it. so with that out of the way, how would it be dangerous?

                • Your brain is a cannabinoid system…

                  The leaves and stems of tomato plants contain the deadly chemical solanine, which can cause death if ingested by children. No part of the marijuana plant is toxic.

          What if he had a bar in his house stocked with booze? Would you call that child endangerment? Of course you wouldn’t so it is equally as ignorant for you to say growing pot in his backyard is child endangerment. Especially when pot is way less poisonous and dangerous than alcohol. Actually, it’s even less dangerous than aspirin.

        • Right, let them rot their livers with “self-medication”, be so drugged that their memories and brains are fried or take or smoke cannabis that can be shaken off EASILY and does a WORLD of good for their bodies and minds.

            Fault isn’t always the result of action, sometimes it is related to inaction. President Obama has been inactive in his support for active duty and veterans. Here is an opportunity for him to right an outrageous wrong with a simple swipe of his pen.

          Prejudice isn’t one party or one person, it’s a cumulative effect of what we are taught and what we accept.

          I live in a “Democrat run” state where cannabis is legal – oh darn… but the Republicans aren’t all deaf and they can be convinced with real science and real world results.

          It’s time to stop blaming a party and start blaming individual politicians whose knowledge is sadly lacking when it comes to what works and what DOES NOT.

          • No… It’s the person, not the party.

            Talk to a PERSON in any PARTY and you will see that their prejudiced or not views are different because of their indoctrination NOT because of facts or science.

            We can change this if we try, even in “Republican” states – there are good and honest Independents and Republicans who are cannabis proponents and there will be more every single election cycle, find them, support them, VOTE for them.

      • storm_crow

        From “PTSD Symptom Reports of Patients Evaluated for the New Mexico Medical Cannabis Program” (tandfonline- 2014) – “Results: Greater than 75% reduction in CAPS symptom scores were reported when patients
        were using cannabis compared to when they were not.“

        Israel has been using medical cannabis for PTSD for over a decade- see “Israel to soothe soldiers with marijuana” (newsmine). Isn’t it time the US caught up?

          • Leon Pfanenstiel

            Paul, your absolutely right! My younger brother lives in El Paso, and I’m in WA about 30mi south of Seattle. He keeps trying to get me to move to TX, and I ask: Why would I do that? I’m growing 30 plants this year legally, and I have 9 gold mining claims up here. They don’t have good gold in TX, and as my Sister-in-law says, “One plant= 99 years”, she’s Pilipino. Washington is a good state to be in if you have an interest in pot, it’s also legal both recreationally and medically in Oregon. Washington is trying to restructure Medical Pot, but for now you can grow three scripts, or 45 plants, in a joint grow, as long as everyone is a MMJ card holder. As long as you try to do the right thing, your fine. I keep myself in pot/hash, and usually give the rest away to MMJ penitents that can use it.

            • Tell HIM to move HERE.

              Then get involved in SAVING Medical Cannabis from the GOONS in Olympia who are breaking the Washington State Constitution in half by putting the REC law for cannabis OVER and ILLEGALLY over the Medical Compassion law that was passed in 1998.

              Article II

              Section 19

              Washington STATE Constitution

              BILL TO CONTAIN ONE SUBJECT. No bill shall embrace more than one subject, and that shall be expressed in the title.

              http://leg.wa.gov/LawsAndAgencyRules/pages/constitution.aspx

              This isn’t the ONLY law they are touching and changing ILLEGALLY.

              We need more Independents and those who believe in the reality of our Constitutions, both state and federal, to move to states where both in danger and both have massive support FROM its citizens even if it doesn’t from our “leaders”.

              • Leon Pfanenstiel

                Moirrainefortruth, Better yet, when they wrote I-502 it specifically states Recreational Pot will have nothing to do with Medical Pot, and they’ve violated that clause. Technically they shouldn’t even mention the two in the same sentence. Once they make their silly little rules into law they are screwed, then it’s time to sue, and shut down recreational pot. They violated I-502 from the start when they went to the medical pot growers for advice. Then, when they gave the growers their licenses to grow they gave them two weeks from the date their license was issued to buy plants that didn’t have to be accounted for. Where do you think the plants came from? Medical growers. I know someone with medical paperwork that’s supplying the growers with plants, and they have a minimum of 3500 plants at any given time, and the state turns a blind eye. Not only is that a violation of I-502, it’s also a violation of federal law, and the state is condoning it. And here’s another point. If you follow their rules and register you’re allowed what 6 plants, and 3 ounces? The first time you harvest 6 plants you’re illegal because you’ll have over 3 ounces. The state can’t make laws that they know people will break by trying to be legal, it’s a set-up and they can’t do that. Their greed will be their downfall, and if I-502 gets shut down that opens the door for all the growers, processors, and retail stores to sue the state. They don’t want that kind of accountability. So, when their rules become law we need to hit them from all sides, make them feel surrounded.

                • Couldn’t agree with you more.

                  What we have is a rogue government, not just federal, states too.

                  It’s not just one law that is being abused, it is many, and the damage is almost incalculable.

                  • Leon Pfanenstiel

                    Yep, it’s time to start writing letters. If we give them a heads up they are about to get sued, and the grounds for the suit they will have no excuses for not resolving the problem before it go’s to court. It makes them look worse, and us look better if they don’t act on it. I’m growing two scripts this season, and the person that has one of the scripts has a daughter-in-law that works with the LCB doing licensing for the Recreational Pot people. Maybe it’s time to use that resource.

          • Texas, Oklahoma and many other states are insanely run by those who have bad educations, bad information and bad “aides” and others who don’t set course corrections for issues like this one.

        There is no doubt in mind mind that pharmaceutical companies are giving some major bucks to politicians to keep marijuana an illegal drug.

              The same could be said of Jewish people who fled Germany. Every person has to decide for themselves what the best plan of action is. – After 40 years of being persecuted by my government for choosing near harmless marijuana over addictive, very harmful alcohol – AND being a reform activist, I believe I, and many, deserve to live in a Free State.

              Further, you can do more effective activism from a Free State, since you don’t have to worry that what you say may get you thrown in jail.

In regards to drugs, I find it odd California wasn’t the first to legalize recreational Cannabis, but then all the laws here that have come up have been horrible for the/us growers..; ) Who fight against full legalization, and industrialization of our industry.

        With 22 veteran suicides daily, our elected leaders are still unable or unwilling to do the right thing. 22 veteran suicides every day has been insufficient to shock them into action. Perhaps if those 22 veterans were to deposit their brains all over the Washington monument each day we would get some action. “Sad,” “unfortunate,” and “unjust” doesn’t cause change. Change seems to require either a billionaire, or something really gory. When it’s my turn I’ll try to keep the team in mind.

Hmmmm . . . . The person who commented and said that those who care MUST swamp the sheriff’s offices and courts with protest was entirely correct. I will be making my call(s) today.

        The America I was sold has always treated its veterans like dog piles, yep we do. And it’s a heart breaking crime. But what is more of a crime is law enforcement who may have also served in the military persecuting one of their own.

        Sheriff Kenny Stradley is the stinkiest part of that dog pile, he should be publicly shamed.

        Marijuana has never caused as much public safety concerns as law enforcement and the military. This is one of the points that clearly identifies persecution of personal liberties (his choice to consume marijuana) is the governments war against its citizens, not a drug war.

          • storm_crow

            Steve, did you know that the federal government has a Medical Cannabis program going on and that they have run it for DECADES? See “4 Americans get medical pot from the feds” (CBS News), “In decades-old program, Uncle Sam provides pot” (MSNBC) and “Chronic Cannabis Use in the Compassionate Investigational New Drug Program” (MAPS) for the details.

            Now about those emails, first off THANK YOU for actually doing something! And the emails might be more effective if you started adding quotes like these to back yourself up-

            From “PTSD Symptom Reports of Patients Evaluated for the New Mexico Medical Cannabis
            Program” (tandfonline- 2014) – “Results: Greater than 75% reduction in CAPS symptom scores were reported when patients were using cannabis compared to when they were not.“

            “Report of a parent survey of cannabidiol-enriched cannabis use in pediatric treatment-resistant epilepsy” (PubMed – 2013) from the abstract – “Sixteen (84%) of the 19 parents reported a reduction in their child’s seizure frequency while taking cannabidiol-enriched cannabis. Of these, two (11%) reported complete seizure freedom, eight (42%) reported a greater than 80% reduction in seizure frequency, and six (32%) reported a 25–60% seizure reduction. Other beneficial effects included increased alertness, better mood, and improved sleep.”

            “THC blocks an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase, which speeds the formation of amyloid plaque in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease. The Alzheimer’s drugs Aricept and Cognex work by blocking acetylcholinesterase. When tested at double the concentration of THC, Aricept blocked plaque formation only 22% as well as THC, and Cognex blocked plaque formation only 7% as well as THC.” From “Marijuana May Slow Alzheimer’s” WebMD.

            Many more studies and articles on how cannabis heals can be found by running a search for the 2015 version of “Granny Storm Crow’s List”- free online and on Facebook.

I know now that many a guy nicknamed “G.I Joe” and who were labeled “Drunkin’ Bums” by society were most likely to be suffering from P.T.S.D.. Cannabis has been intertwined with the stigma of un patriotism,criminality, and “Dope Use” … while men and women are hurting themselves . Many who I see opposed are “Nanny ,War hawks types”, who never served and many use alcohol as a coping drug themselves. Legalize don’t criminalize and stigmatize . Let us stop calling cannabis “Dope” reserving that term for the heroin and meth epidemic .

I DEAL WITH PTSD MYSELF, AND IF MEDICAL MARY JANE CAN HELP YOU WITH YOUR PTSD, THEN IT SHOULD BE ALLOWED FOR THIS PROUD MARINE CORPS VETERAN WHO SERVED OUR COUNTRY TO USE IT PERIOD, SINCE THE LAWS AGAINST MARIJUANA IS CHANGING THROUGHOUT OUR COUNTRY! USMC 1968 TO 1975 – VIETNAM 1969, AND 1970-71 SEMPER FI

        Oklahoma and Kansas both ought to get with the times. True Texas is the embarassing armpit of my United States, but OK and KS are my country’s bad breath.

        You have got to be kidding me? Really? God, he and his family should have moved to Colorado as soon as it became legal to avoid all this mess. Oklahoma needs to get real. This guy doesn’t deserve to be treated this way.
        For crying out loud!
        State laws in Oklahoma need their Legislative Representatives to go to bat for the people of the state! Wow!

      • Mike De

        This story absolutely disgusts me. How is it right to treat people this way? If I were a cop I wouldn’t enforce marijuana laws.

        • And any cop that supports the drug war is a bad cop. The drug war has turned our police forces into criminals. Oklahoma, Kansas, and all of the rest of these red states, are nothing but a hellhole for any modern man or woman. Anyone that wants to live a decent life should NOT live in red states where idiot hayseeds are making bad laws on a continual basis.

        Prohibitionists are neither civil nor productive members of society, they are soulless parasites — inhuman, oppressive criminals from whom protection is required.

        Prohibition is an absolute scourge —The End! The use of drugs is NOT the real problem, the system that grants exclusive distribution rights to violent cartels and terrorists IS.

        If you support prohibition then you support bank-rolling criminals and terrorists. There’s simply no other logical way of looking at it.

        GERONIMO, Okla._What started out as a call on a domestic disturbance complaint for Comanche County Sheriff’s deputies, turned into a major pot bust in the county.

        Deputies responded to a home on Arapaho Street in Geronimo around 10:00 p.m. Sunday after 32-year-old Kristoffer Lewandowski was seen chasing his wife with a knife. After barricading himself in his home, he ultimately surrendered. That’s when nine marijuana plants were found growing on the property.

        “This is a rare deal. Usually you just go out to a domestic and you just take care of the situation,” explained Comanche County Sheriff Kenny Stradley.

        Sheriff Stradley said it was clear from the get-go that Sunday night’s call was anything but typical.

        “The individual supposedly chased his wife with a knife and she went next door to a neighbor. They went to the door, he was inside the house, he first wouldn’t come out. We thought he had a gun,” said Stradley.

        Once Lewandowski surrendered and came out of this house, that’s when sheriff’s deputies went inside. All it took was one look around the home for officers to realize they were dealing with a more serious situation.

        can we blow oklahomo off the map?

        • jamminjjs

          We should just use the who state for fracking, and let the tornados and earthquakes finish the job.

      • Julie Moore

        I’d get the heck out of that state… Plus refuse to serve the corrupt people and their corrupt country (ie what matters to those in charge).

      • Julie Moore

        wow really you send a person to war for the elite corrupt bastards to get rich and then when he gets sick and tries to treat and help himself with something that don’t cause liver failure or cancer like most the rx drugs do and you throw him in jail after sending him to war for you for how long???

      • Bob Mylow

        Cannabis one of the safest treatment options known to man. It’s demonized for the same possible side effects that every FDA approved PTSD drug are also known to have. No prescribed PTSD drug was ever meant to be a life long or even meant for more than a few years. End the senseless war on drugs. No American serviceman should become a POW in his own country.
