Beating on Our Soldiers - Physically & Mentally
It's not enough that our soldiers are getting a daily mental beating by the anti-war crowd and many members of Congress. Now one decorated Canadian soldier has gotten a physical beating from some creeps. Here's the story about Cpl. Collin Fitzgerald...
He says he'd been in the bar only about 20 minutes late Friday, visiting with a childhood friend who introduced him to people as a war hero, when he was suddenly struck from behind with some type of object. Four men jumped him and began beating on him.
"They were saying 'What kind of hero are you now?'," Fitzgerald's mother Arlene told CTV News. Bystanders pulled the attackers off Fitzgerald and his friends drove him to hospital.
The weapons instructor at CFB Trenton, recognized by Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean on Feb. 19 for braving enemy fire in Afghanistan, had his foot broken in three places and needed 10 stitches to close a cut above his right eye. Fitzgerald, 27, also suffered a broken nose and two black eyes in the Friday night attack.
He served eight months in Afghanistan. He was one of the first recipients of the Canadian Medal of Military Valour, "for outstanding selfless and valiant actions" carried out on May 24, 2006, during an enemy ambush "involving intense, accurate enemy fire."
Ya gotta love someone impugning a soldier's hero status while jumping them from behind. What a piece of Michael Moore these thugs are...I hope they catch the lower than a snake's belly morons that did this. And I hope they let the REAL hero give a little payback.
Don't forget that Canada is a haven for the yellow bellied chickens that can't hack the US military. They have their very own War Resisters League too. It's too bad we can't pool the anti-war jerks from both countries into their own little island...
