Iraq Hero

Wouldn't it be fitting if this went completely around the world!..... Here’s a story and an Iraq picture of John Gebhardt, sent to be by a good friend.

John’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 coming 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.

God bless John. He will be rewarded for such a kind act toward this child. I only wonder what will happen to this precious human being after this soldier has returned to his family. This kind deed will always be in his memory.He and our military are in our prayers every day.

I wish I knew how to contact John and personally write him a "Thank You and God Bless You" note.
