Eggs and Bill send us a link to the heartbreaking story of a 25-year-old Indiana Guardsman, Willie Cook, back just 5 months from Afghanistan, who was gunned down last week in what police say was a case of mistaken identity. His last act was to protect his 2-year-old son from the 15 bullets which pierced his car;
On February 2, Cook, was shot and killed while in a car near his grandmother’s East Chicago house where he was taking Antoine for a visit. The veteran was found on top of his little boy, shielding him from the 15 bullets that pierced the car.
” He saved his son he made sure that before he left the last thing he did make sure his son was okay,” said Norwood.
Antoine was hit, too, in the left leg. Another bullet skimmed his right [leg] and a third grazed the toddler’s head.
