Army Vets, Ex-SEAL Among 4 Killed in Iraq

• Views: 1,032

Here’s some information about the Americans murdered and torn apart in Fallujah yesterday. Our thoughts go out to their families, who must be suffering immensely.

Army Vets, Ex-SEAL Among 4 Killed in Iraq.

Family members and a spokesperson said Thursday that Jerko “Jerry’ Zovko, 32, Michael Teague, 38, and Scott Helvenston, 38, died with another civilian Wednesday after they were hit by rocket-propelled grenades in a rebel ambush. The victims worked for Blackwater Security Consulting, one of five subsidiaries of Blackwater USA based in North Carolina.

Zovko’s mother said she and her husband had suspected their son might be among the dead, but their fears were confirmed Thursday morning when the president of Blackwater USA knocked on their door.

”It was the hardest day of my life,“ Donna Zovko said during an interview in her suburban Cleveland home.

”Jerry was a man with a principle, an idea,“ his mother said. ”He loved people. He wanted the world to be without borders, for everybody to be free and safe.“

Zovko’s family wouldn’t say whether he was married or had children.

”My brother was an exceptional individual,“ Tom Zovko said. ”He did what he thought was right.“

Jerry Zovko joined the Army in 1991 at age 19. He spoke five languages fluently — English, Croatian, Spanish, Russian and Arabic. He was a member of the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Tom Zovko said.

Teague, of Clarksville, Tenn., was a 12-year Army veteran who earned a Bronze Star for service in Afghanistan and also served in Panama and Grenada, his wife, Rhonda, said in a prepared statement. She called her husband a ”proud father, soldier and American.“

”I, his son Brandon and his friends and family will miss him without measure,“ her statement said.

Of course, our rotten media has to dig up the one person within miles who’ll spout the loony left line we’ll be hearing more and more in the coming days:

Marty Huffstickler, 52, who works part time as an electrician for Blackwater, said he believes Americans are ”dying for no reason.“

”I don’t agree with what’s going on over there,“ he said. ”The people over there don’t want us there.”
