This is an email that came from Trish, a frequent commentor here on the blog. And it really needed to be shared! (The original email was dated just two days ago 9/25)
Got a tough, but heartwarming story and a picture of John Gebhardt in Iraq.

For those that did not know John, he was our former Med Group Chief…Dave Nordel replaced him.

Anyway, his wife talked with mine last evening and sent this picture. Mindy related that this little girl’s entire family was executed…they intended to execute her also and shot her in the head…but they failed to kill her. She was cared for by John’s hospital and healing up, but has been crying and moaning. The nurses said John is the only one she seems to calm down with, so John has spent the last four nights holding her while they both sleep in that chair. The girl is coming along with her healing.
John comes home in early October.

Which was followed by these comments:

Picture and write up says it all. Pass along.
TEAM: FYI, Outstanding stuff from your former Chief…This is why we do what we do!!
David (LtCol Nelson)

Thought you would enjoy this, David worked with the Chief, read the message below. This picture really does show how much people give of themselves over in Iraq, too bad the media doesn’t share this kind of story.

OK, for all my moonbat visitors who think my blog is about bigotry and hating Muslims, Take note. Gawfer is about protecting America and its own at all costs. That includes killing bad guys before they kill us, and defending the defenseless such as this young las!

I contend it is Islam that perpetuates this kind of violence, and is fueled by the liberal free thinkers of this nation.

We the strong must then step up to eliminate the threat that Islam poses to all mankind, including there own as this story illustrates. That occasionally means fighting a bloody war that kills our own. That sucks, but that is why war is the last and final option. Once we go to war, there is no more talking no more negotiations. We fight to win. We kill the enemy without remorse. And we as American civilians put aside our selfish desires to support those who do the fighting.

So get over yourselves, and stand up to be counted as one who loves his freedom, and is willing to die for it.
