Leavenworth Family members of soldiers who are imprisoned at Fort Leavenworth for killings during the Iraq war plan are planning a rally in Leavenworth.
The relatives call the inmates the Leavenworth 10, although two have been released from the prison.
Scott Behenna, one of the organizers of the Labor Day weekend rally, says the group is not anti-military. Instead, he says, members are trying to raise awareness about the soldiers. He says all the prisoners — including his son — killed because they believed they were defending themselves or other members of the military.
The Leavenworth Times reports that the Leavenworth 10 Freedom Ride is scheduled Sept. 4. Riders will travel through Leavenworth and have a program at a city park.
Retired Army Lt. Col. Allen West, who is running for Congress in Florida, will attend the event.
