WASHINGTON — They say there is nothing more devastating than losing a child.
Imagine, then, what it must be like to have a son predict his own brutal murder, and stand by helplessly as his prediction comes true.
WND’s camera was rolling as Greg Buckley Sr. summoned all his strength and told the heartbreaking story of his Marine son’s violent death to the crowd at the “Reclaim America” rally across the street from the White House Tuesday.
Visibly shaken and struggling to keep his emotions in check, it obviously took all the willpower the proud father could muster to tell how Lance Cpl. Greg Buckley Jr. was shot to death by a supposed ally – one of the Afghans the U.S. military is assigned to train and protect.
Buckley Sr. recounted how his son, safely stationed in Hawaii, volunteered in March 2012 to replace an injured buddy slated to go to Afghanistan.
The Marine was sent to Forward Operating Base Delhi, and it quickly became apparent that all was not well there.
When Buckley Jr. predicted his own death, his father could not understand: The Marine should be safe because he was not on the battlefield.
But his son would explain why he felt being on the base with the people he was supposedly there to protect was so much more dangerous than being in combat.
Thanks for this story.
Oh my gosh!! We do not belong there!!! They are sick sick people!! No respect for anyone or anything! My heart goes out to the Buckley family!
Why do we have to be fighting these people? I do not understand, and now his precious son is dead, WHY?? What did it accomplish? I am so sorry for your loss and the pain you are feeling, I cannot imagine..
And how many of our other service men have been executed in a like manor? Only because he confided in his father has this one come to light. What is our government doing about it? Nothing, of course. Our childrens lives mean nothing to them. You won't find any of their children in the service unless they have a posh "job" here in the states or a friendly country. Our entire government (except for a few good men,women) should move to one of these Muslim countries,and good riddance.
My personal feelings: This regime has decided to keep our troops their until 2024, because they won't get in the way of what obama has in store for this country. I believe there is going to be a huge war and thousands of our troops will be killed. I just wish we could bring them home and stop this mad man from completing his job, JOBS.. He has no love of this country and is talking us all down. It will be on fast track from this day forward.
I find it hard to make plans for even a week out. Its in my gut, I feel something very big is coming and soon.
Read that heartbreaking story yesterday. My heart goes out for the family along with my prayers. Fellow Americans need to open their eyes to our treacherous "friends" and make military decisions accordingly.
THE WAR IS HERE NOT THERE ( BRING THE TROOPS HOME ) ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? .
WE NEED OUR MILITARY BACK IN THE U.S.A., WE NEED THEM MORE THEN FIGHTING FOR NOTHING............
WE NEED THEM TO TAKE OVER AMERICA, THE W.H. ETC. IF NOT WE ALL ARE GOING DOWN BY OUR OWN GOVERNMENT.
