THANK YOU TO AMERCIANS SOLDIERS

Post by Awd261 » Fri Aug 21, 2015 2:35 pm

Hi ALL;

tonight , i would like to open this post; perhaps not in the correct topic.

It is to thanks the two American soldiers; who have avoided a slaughter into a train between Paris (France) - and - Amsterdam (Netherland)
They've seen a suspect guy, he went to the toilet, until where they have followed him.
They heard the guy was feeding a weapon, it was a kalashnikov.

Then they have neutralised it; both have been hurt, one is in critic condition.
The suspect was owning a bag with a gun, a knife and about 10 ammo magazines.

Thanks to Americans.

They had the cojones to act--without permission--when they saw what needed to be done!

Zeph,

I read Air Force and National Guard, but my nephew, Lance Corporal Nick Corn, USMC, would agree with your statement either way!

Yes, more information has come out since I first heard they were Marines. In any event, still very impressed with their actions
