Gold Star Family Of Dead Soldier Booed By “Disgusting” Passengers On Flight To Meet Son’s Remains
Are you F**king serious, America??!!
The father of a soldier who was killed last weekend in Afghanistan was disappointed and hurt after airline passengers booed him and his family as they flew to meet his son’s remains. As McClatchy reports, Stewart Perry, an ex-Marine who lives in Stockton, said the ordeal left him feeling disrespected: “It was really disgusting on the passengers’ part.”
His son, Sgt. John W. Perry, was one of two killed in an explosion at a United States airbase on Nov. 12. He was honored at a memorial service in Lodi on Thursday and will be buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
The Department of Defense said the blast also took the lives of two U. S. contractors working on the base. Sixteen other U. S. service members and one Polish soldier participating in a NATO mission were wounded.
