Have you heard of Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt? Maybe you have and maybe you haven’t. CMSgt. Hebhardt gain some notoriety recently. Not for an action that he took on the battlefield, but rather for a picture(not shown because it is graphic) that was taken of him.
In 2006, CMSgt. John Gebhardt was photographed holding a little Iraqi girl that had been injured. Her family had been attacked by insurgents. Both of her parents were killed, along with many of her siblings, and she had been shot in the head and left for dead. But she was tougher than that. She was brought to Balad Air Base Hospital where she was operated on and ultimately saved. As you can imagine, it was an extremely hard time for this little girl. Her recovery was hellish. But when CMSgt. Gebhardt would hold her, she seemed to be comforted. He spent many nights sleeping in a chair with her in his arms. The picture wast taken by a fellow airman while CMSgt. Gebhardt and the little girl were napping. Said CMSgt. Gebhardt, “I’m sure that probably just gave her some inner peace that she could reach.”
On a side note. This is why I started doing these Wednesday Hero posts. Because of people like Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt. It’s soldiers like him that make me proud of our military.
These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
This post is part of the Wednesday Hero Blogroll. If you would like to participate in honoring the brave men and women who serve this great country, you can find out how by going here.

Iâ€™m not usually this
freakin dense brainless.
Or perhaps I just need a job as CEO of a pet food company; it appears that at least the Menu Foods, and Natural Balance CEO’s attended and studied the dim-witted lessons.
Natural Balance however obviously learned nothing from the lessons American Consumers taught to Menu Foods, for lying, distorting the facts, or simply concealing them.
Whatâ€™s behind door number three, Alex? More recalls?
Perhaps Natural Balance can explain, why a cat food that makes the specific claim that it contains No Rice And Is Grain Free contains rice gluten?
The Natural balance website specifically says that itâ€™s Venison and Pea dry cat food does not contain :
â€¢ No Artificial Preservatives, Flavors, Colors, or Bleached Ingredients. Does not contain Corn, Soy, Wheat, Rice, Eggs, Dairy Products or Sunflower Oil.
Here is a quote from their recall:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Pacoima, CA — April 17, 2007– Natural Balance, Pacoima, CA, is issuing a voluntary nationwide recall for all of its Venison dog products and the dry Venison cat food only, regardless of date codes. The recalled products include Venison and Brown Rice canned and bagged dog foods, Venison and Brown Rice dog treats, and Venison and Green Pea dry cat food. Recent laboratory results show that the products contain melamine. We believe the source of the melamine is a rice protein concentrate. Natural Balance has confirmed this morning that some production batches of these products may contain melamine.
