As war rages on in Ukraine, the family of a Marine from Texas now imprisoned in Russia is requesting to meet with President Joe Biden ahead of his Fort Worth visit this week.
For Joey and Paula Reed, their message is simple: work to make a deal with Russia to bring their son and other detained Americans home before tensions between the two countries worsen.
Biden is expected to visit Fort Worth on Tuesday to discuss veterans issues.
The Reeds hope to share their message with Biden in person; if not, they plan to peacefully gather wherever the president’s events are being held to bring awareness to their son Trevor’s situation.
Trevor Reed, 30, has been imprisoned in Russia for over two and a half years after visiting to see his girlfriend there in 2019.
“We miss him terribly,” Paula Reed said. “He’s been gone far too long.”
“Imagine your child being kidnapped and how that would make you feel,” Joey Reed said. “Then multiply that by 1,000.”
