It’s a tough, but heartwarming story…with a picture of Sargent 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 c oming 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 with the WORLD! 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.

    Great story – good reminder of what all troops (US and Canadian) do to help over there. However, might you might want to mention that this photo is from a year ago, rather than current. Found more info on google.

    I got this email and it brought tears to my eyes. I’m pretty sure this happens everyday over there, but all the news shows is the violent side. It good to finally see the softer side of our soldiers. Thank you so much for the picture!!!
