Their lives have changed… forever…..When two green uniformed men knock at the door……
Have you ever wondered why it is when anyone dies it is always said of them “They were a good person”. Well if you Google “Sgt Buddy James Hughie” you will see his official story and know that he really was more than a “good person”.
What you will see in the official accounts of our American Hero’s death is that he “left his position of cover” to render aid to wounded soldiers.
What you won’t see in the official accounts is the reason Buddy left his position of safety. I personally spoke with two different army officers under two separate commands who were there that day. In fact one of the officers was in the other up-armored Humvee that recovered Buddy’s body after he was killed by a Taliban sniper.
“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.” -Theodore Roosevelt
This is a difficult story to read without the tissue paper. SGT Hughie’s heroic story is NOT told to make you feel sad. It is to make you feel proud as Americans that soldiers like SGT Hughie DO exist. This should remind us all to count our blessings. Hold our loved ones closer.
Play with our kids more FOR you just never know when you will see them again.To all the vets, a salute, a thank you and May God Bless each one of you.
A TRIBUTE TO ALL THE HEROES
