Amazing Iraq War Hero

I recieved this today from a dear friend and I must do more than spam email it to my family and friends. I have family right now in Iraq fighting, and I know how important it is to understand it's more than just a war. For me when I think war, I picture what I've seen in movies or news clips. I don't picture the softer side.
And we should.

Here's what I recieved.

"John works at the Cargill plant in Eddyville Iowa .

Wouldn't it be fitting if this went completely around the world!......

This needs to make headline news...not some of the other junk that makes the news these days!!! Like the Rosie O'Donell war of words...celeb weddings.....who's not wearing undies...etc.

If you agree, please pass this along.

It's a tough, but heartwarming story...with a picture of John Gebhardt in Iraq .


John Gebhardt's wife, Mindy, said that this little girl's entire family was executed... The insurgents intended to execute the little girl also, and shot her in the head...but they failed to kill her. She was cared for in John's hospital and is healing up, but continues to cry and moan. 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 slept in that chair. The girl is coming along with her healing.

He is a real Star of the war, and represents what America is trying to do.

This, my friends, is worth sharing. Go for it!! You'll never see things like this in the news. Please keep this going. Nothing will happen if you don't, but the American public needs to see pictures like this and needs to realize that what we're doing over there is making a difference. Even if it is just one little girl at a time.

Thank you for sharing this - I wish the news would share the softer side of the war. There isn't a "soft" side to war - but the war is fought by people...and ever person has a story. And everyone fighting in a war - and being separated from their own families for months on end - is a HERO. Whether we agree with the war or not, our fellow Americans are trying to make a difference. Don't confuse these brave people putting their lives n danger with politics. Awesome pic...I'm putting away my soapbox now. :) (Believe it or not, I NEVER comment like this - or say anything about the war, politics, religion, etc.) I just appreciate the reminder - and hope others see it as well.

Have a great day!
