    I see John on the Today show today, I very sorry to hear what happen to him, With what happen to his girlfriend. I believe take there is a change, My sister was home on leave from the Army, my other sister and her were playing around with a BB gun, my one sister said you won’t shout me, and instantly, she did, she fealt very bad after, but the thing is that she did! So people change and I know things happen that never should! My prayers to you and you family!

    Sad story. They left someone behind. They being the US military as a whole. The bastards of the 212 should pay dearly as they rot in hell. Prayers to John’s family and his girlfriend’s family. This was not fair for anyone involved. To John’s mom…God bless you. You are a strong woman. More than I would’ve ever believed.
