Three of the four U.S. Airmen shot in Germany a couple days ago were stationed at RAF Lakenheath. They are members of the Security Forces squadron there. That was my first unit, so these shootings hit close to home. I went through that airport in October of 2003 and never once considered that I might be in danger. I was in civilian clothes, but my luggage made it clear that I was military and likely from the United States.
Rest in peace, Airmen. You served with honor.
It is a little sad that the media in the United States is more interested in following the antics of an idiotic lunatic than the fact that four Airmen were shot, two fatally.
