Disgusting: Gold Star Family Suffers Through Booing by Passengers on Flight to Bring Son’s Body Home

Saturday, November 19, 2016 11:33
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is upsetting to epic levels.

Sgt. John Perry was killed in Afghanistan a week ago, when he stumbled across a suicide bomber.

The bomber was on his way to take out U.S. servicemen who would be participating in a 5k Veterans Day run.

Any time one of our servicemen or women are killed, it is a time to mourn. What makes this particularly upsetting, however, is what happened on the family’s flight to bring their son’s body home for burial.

The family and their fallen son were booed by the passengers of that flight back to California.

Perry’s father spoke:

Perry said his son’s death comes comes at a time military service is facing disrespect. He said his family was even booed on the flight to bring his son’s body home over a delay.

“To hear the reaction of the flight being delayed because of a Gold Star family and the first class cabin booing, that was really upsetting, and it made us cry some more,” he said.

So the first class cabin of this long flight home booed someone whom neither of them could hope to rise to his level of worth to humanity.

I can just about guarantee you that those booing this American hero and his family were among those who also feigned disdain over Donald Trump’s comments towards the Gold Star Khan family, who spoke at the DNC convention.

Mr. Perry mentioned Trump and the Khan family, as a matter of fact.

“One example would be Donald Trump speaking badly about a Gold Star family, who I now am, and it really bothers me, but it also bothers me that people don’t want to talk about the terrorism that killed my kid,” he said.

A soldier’s death defending his country has left a father defending his son.

“My kid was over there to help put a stop to this garbage, and he died,” he said.

And he’s right.

Our military men and women deserve our highest respect. What happened on this flight should never happen to another mourning military family.

    sadly, this man’s son, died because of the US government,.. the US government created isis, trained isis, supplied isis AND THE SO CALLED MODERATE REBELS who are ISIS!!
    but the US military is there MURDERING Afghani’s! Oh and coincidentally, since the US military invasion of Afghanistan, the production of HEROIN is up 1200%.. he should look up the photo’s of US TROOPS guarding poppy fields! FYI heroin is made from poppies!
    If this man should be mad at anyone, he has two choices, the CURRENT occupant of the white house and his death cronies in the senate/congress OR HIMSELF for being willfully ignorant of the facts and failing to teaching his son that the US military doesn’t actually protect America! They go to foreign countries at the behest of those in power and corporations for PROFIT and MURDER PEOPLE!

    When precisely was the last time the US military defended the united states of America??? it wasn’t during the phony war in iraq, nor the phony war in Afghanistan, nor the attacks on Yemen, nor the attacks in Syria, or Libya!

    So, when was it?? When did the US military, after 1946 defend the united states of America?? I can’t find one single instance of an attack that defended against by the US military!
