Media Makes Fun of Wounds suffered by Marine Nick "Gunny Pop" Popaditch
Regardless of your politics, we believe that making fun of veterans who were critically wounded in the service of OUR country, is just wrong.
Arguing ideas and policy is one thing; making fun of the someone's loss of his eyes (yes, Nick lost one completely and 92% of the vision in his remaining eye and he is essentially deaf in his right ear after being hit in the head with a rocket after 36 hours of continuous combat in Fallujah), is simply despicable and demands a retraction.
Please let the The Imperial Valley Press know that you think the same thing.
