US military veterans in Washington demand the release of US Marine veteran Andrew Tahmooressi, who was being held on gun charges in Mexico, October 25, 2014A former US Marine, jailed in Mexico since March for carrying firearms into the country, was back in the United States Saturday after a Mexican court ordered his release. Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi, 26, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, crossed the border into San Diego overnight, before flying to Florida, US media reported. His arrival follows pressure from top US officials, who pushed for Tahmooressi's release after he was detained on March 31 while entering Mexico from San Ysidro, California. Tahmooressi's family has said he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and crossed the border into Tijuana inadvertently with several weapons that he had purchased legally in the United States inside his truck.
