““If they’re looking for a fight, they came to the right guy . . . I promise you this: If they come here, they’ll die here.”
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.
According to Western Journalism:
“Sinke, a Canadian-American dual citizen who lives in Canada, said “the murder of the young Cpl. Cirillo was so despicable and craven that I just couldn’t find it within myself to do nothing.” He arrived at the memorial… and stood guard by himself until the Canadian honor guard and eight Canadian police officers with fully automatic weapons joined him.”
