American Hero: Compassion In Action

Something else you won't see in the main stream media: Chief Master Sgt. John Gebgardt comforting a wounded Iraqi baby under the medical care of the U.S.

The infant received extensive gunshot injuries to the head when terrorists attacked her family, murdering both her parents and most of her siblings. She was left for dead.

The Chief Master Sgt. often held the baby while they both slept, as he was the only one who could comfort her.

"I pray for the best for the Iraqi children," he said. "I can't tell the difference between their kids and our kids. The Iraqi parents have the same care and compassion for their children as any American."

All the more reason not to abandon these people, don't you think?
