O'REILLY: It must have been very difficult for you to talk to your parents.
You had some phone conversations with them. Thanks to the U.S. Consulate down there. It must have been difficult to talk to your mom and stuff, right.
HAMMAR: Yes, it was difficult, you know, because the court in Mexico was telling me one thing, and then they were getting other information.
We were going back and forth, trying to figure out what was going on. So, yes, that was difficult.
O'REILLY: Yes, there were some people who wanted to give you 12 years for this little deal. That was what was staring you in the face, right, 12 years.
HAMMAR: Yes. They were thinking about 12 years.
O'REILLY: Do you have any bitterness toward the Mexicans.
HAMMAR: No, I don't. I think Mexico is great place. I really wish, you know, like everywhere, could kind of get its act together.
O'REILLY: All right. Anything we can do, let us know. And we appreciate you talking to us tonight.
HAMMAR: And, Bill, I really -- I'd like to thank you for everything you've done for me in this situation. I'd also like to thank Ileana Ros- Lehtinen, Bill Nelson, and all of the Congress people.
O'REILLY: OK, Corporal. It's a pleasure for us to do it. You're a patriot and we wish you all the best.
