Powerful Letter of Fort Hood Solider Penned Asking for His ‘God-Given Right’ to Arm Himself on Base [READ]
This heartbreaking letter describes how Obama as Commander in Chief of our military forces has abandoned the safety and liberty of our military men to thugs with guns by disarming US military on US soil.
“My name is First Lieutenant Patrick Cook of the 49th Transportation Battalion, Fort Hood, Texas, and this past Wednesday I found myself trapped in an enclosed room with fourteen of my fellow Soldiers, one of whom was barricading the door against a madman with a .45 pistol when he was fatally shot.”
That’s the way a letter detailing a soldier’s experience during last week’s Fort Hood massacre begins.
“Through what I can only describe as a miracle, he somehow found enough strength to continue pushing against that door until the shooter gave up and went elsewhere, at which time he collapsed,” Cook wrote. “Nearly a week later, I can still taste his blood in my mouth from when I and my comrades breathed into his lungs for 20 long minutes while we waited for a response from the authorities. This Soldier’s name was Sergeant First Class Daniel Ferguson, and his sacrifice loaned me the rest of my life to tell this story.”
Cook then used the letter to call for the repeal of regulations that disarm military personnel on military bases.
“But I write to you today not to memorialize this brave Soldier, nor to tell a war story about how we made the best of a losing situation, but to express the part of that story that some in high positions of power clearly do not want told: I knew this was going to happen,” he wrote. “I had been saying for five years that Fort Hood was a tinderbox of another massacre waiting to happen. It had to happen, because our betters failed to learn the obvious lesson of five years ago. Worse yet, I know it will happen again. More will die, more will be wounded, more families will be torn apart, needlessly. It happened again, and will happen again, because Fort Hood is a gun free zone.”
Someone must STOP Obama from overhauling the world’s greatest military force and turning it into a New Eunuch Army, to be commanded and destroyed by his pleasure and will. Who can stop him remains to be seen.
