When you’ve completed tours in Vietnam and have 5 Purple Hearts to boast about, you’re already quite the hero. But for one retired United States Marine, there was more work to be done.

Marine Major R. E. G. “Fox” Sinke, Jr. heard the news that Corporal Nathan Cirillo was killed by a lone gunman while standing guard at Canada’s National War Museum and was spurred to take action.

That is so cool!

To anyone that still maintains a fantasy that the USA or the folks that comprise America are not Canada's closest Ally and friend, I offer a standing invitation for my assistance in shoving their head all the way up their a s s

This man felt a moral obligation to do this. I salute him!

good on him; a good way to showcase the need to address the root causes behind domestic so-called "self-radicalizers"... causes other than mental illness...

They're still Marines.

They didn't have orders to die, or faced a court martial. So technically, they're AWOL.

One, he's never said that.

Two, our own "Lone Wolf" might take an issue with that. Of course if you're only issue is to make a mockery out of the tragic death of Nathan Cirillo, then maybe you don't care about that.

They aren't undeceased, they simply did not cease being marines.

We will wait for your comments when you are obliged to assist paying off their debt. You will no doubt be front of the line with your gold and assets when the plate comes around, AND IT WILL. As for a head up a hole I think we can count on your experience. You'll no doubt send your children to their next war in the quest for democracy, well mine ain't going to help the worlds most brutal savage murdering thieving ignorant beast ever to stain this planet.

That's a great show of solidarity, but do we have our own soldier guarding the memorial?

Yes, they were returned to duty a day or two after the shooting if I remember correctly.

Which falls under the definition of gesture. They arent mutually exclusive.

Yep. They even had cops with machine guns there for a few days afterwards along with the ceremonial guard.

Yes you do, and the Marine who filled in was also your own soldier. He may have served in the U.S. Marines, but Maj. Sinke is Canadian.



Sinke arrived at the memorial at 6:30 a.m. and guarded the memorial alone until 9 a.m., when the Canadian honor guard and eight Canadian police officers armed with fully automatic weapons showed up, he said.

The Canadian troops were glad to see him there and allowed him to guard the northern side of the monument for the day, but the senior police officer was initially perturbed, telling Sinke he should not have been at the memorial by himself.

“He says, ‘God man, you got more balls than brains don’t you?’ ” Sinke said. “So I said, ‘Well actually, sir, I was kind of hoping that one of those scum-of-the-earth radicals would show up and take me on because, to tell you the truth, I have always dreamed of being able to confront an evil-doer and run him through with this damn sword.’ So he kind of liked that, you know.”

Anyone that gave death threats to this gentleman need to get their asses thrown out of this country (since they obviously hate it so much). Or, better yet, make them have a face-to-face meeting with this Marine so they can tell him why he is so "deserving" of death. I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that they would just piss their pants and wish they were anywhere else but there.
