A few days ago, I wrote about my frustration with the lack of attention paid to the humanitarian relief provided by our troops. Yesterday, I ran across the story of one "Gentle Warrior" which deserves some attention.
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.
