Wednesday’s Hero

This Post Was Suggested By Leigh

Almost two weeks ago a tragic event took place in Aurora, Colorado when a gunman walked into a movie theater and began shooting, killing 12 people. Three of those who were killed were military personnel.


Petty Officer 3rd Class John Larimer was 27 years old and served in the United States Navy. He was killed protecting his girlfriend from the gunfire.


Staff Sgt. Jesse Childress was 29 years old and served in the United States Air Force Reserves. He was killed protecting a friend who went with him to the movie.


Jonathan T. Blunk was a Navy veteran who left the service in 2009. He served three tours in the Persian Gulf and North Arabian Sea between 2004 and 2009 and was a certified firefighter and emergency medical technician. He died shielding his girlfriend from the gunfire.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.
