Compassionate TroopsMaster Sergeant John Gebhart was interviewed in reference to a photo of him holding a Iraqi baby on a morning television news show. According to Sergeant Gebhart, his photo had been singled out and for some reason circulated around by email. Although we don’t see many like this on the evening news, Gebhart said from his perspective compassion from American Troop stationed in Iraq is the norm. One wouldn’t know this from most of what is reported on Iraq … that reporting being our military mistakes and misbehavior … which is only a very small number of those troops. The rest are valiantly serving, with compassion, in a difficult war. It is nice to see a few positive images that reflect well on our troops and on Americans. I’ll include a short video interview below with John Gebhart and his wife from Fox and Friends this morning.
