    Nothing in the Ft.Bragg Advocate, nor the Fayettville Observer, nor Military times etc.

    When I was stationed at fort Campbell a few years ago we had a soldier try to rob the PX with a gun the day before we deployed. That never made the papers either. I know that was true because he was my soldier.

    I like that I can be able to believe what people say until I find out I can't trust their word. It's to bad when others are so quick to place doubt.

    I know a few people on ft bragg and haven't heard about it. Will have to give them a call.

    I will take him at his word that this did happen but I am disappointed that he would be proud of his son trampling over this persons Freedom of speech. As you said we don't agree with it but it is his right. I would also like to point out that if this did happen as described his son would have been charged with assault since there was nothing to justify the actions he took.

    Now if there was a bomb or other device found that could cause injury to others that were in the store then you would be correct to feel proud of the actions your son took.

    But since nothing was found your son now looks bad for the actions he took.
