A Star in Iraq or What the Media Doesn't Tell Us

This was originally posted to my MySpace blog on Jan 13, 2007 but I have recently received it several times via email, so I thought I would put it up here as a more permanent tribute to our troops.


Please feel free to copy it at any time and pass it on, as the original author states below.

This, my friends, is worth sharing with the WORLD! Go for it!!

This is something that you'll never see in the news. Please keep this going. Nothing will happen if you don't. The American public need to see pictures like this and needs to realize that what were doing over there is making a difference. Even if it is one little girl at a time.

This, my friends, is what we need to remember. Here is a tough, but heartwarming story and a picture of John Gebhardt in Iraq.

John's wife, Mindy, related that this little girl's entire family was executed. The insurgents 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 is healing up, but has been crying and moaning. The nurses said John is the only one who seems to calm her down, 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.

*He is a real Star of the war and is representative of what America is trying to do. End of original story

This one's from John's own article
