Germany Shootings

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.


About emeree

I am an Air Force veteran. I served as a Security Forces troop for nearly seven years and reached the rank of Staff Sergeant before separating in 2008. My tours of duty were in England and Oklahoma. I live in the Seattle area, which is where I grew up. I used my GI Bill and earned a degree from the University of Washington. I currently work in downtown Seattle and experience all the adventure that comes with that.
