Those who hide the truth or prevent the truth from being known, are the very ones who wish to hide the real truth and rewrite history.

Disabled Iraq War vet and wife mugged

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on August 4, 2006

Mark Beyers lost an arm and a leg to a roadside bomber in Iraq, but that didn’t stop a gang of thugs from mugging Beyers and his wife outside a Bethesda, Md., restaurant.

Beyers, 27, a Marine lance corporal from Elma finishing up rehabilitation at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., had just left a restaurant on July 22 when the robbery happened.

“Five guys approached us,” his wife, Denise, said in a telephone interview from Washington. “They were asking for a cigarette, we gave them one, and headed toward our car.”

The attackers used Beyers condition as an opportunity to score some money. It is getting to the point that Military Members coming home with injuries are treated like dirt. Military Members only follow the orders that they are given. Those that attack them are cowards.

  1. Walter K. said

    This is so despicable that apparently a new law needs to be passed (unfortunately) to protect Disabled American Veterans, and American Veterans from scumbag muggers in our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. Might I suggest 10 years hard labor for a first conviction of what should be a felony offense.

  2. What is even worse is that a lot of disabled VETS coming home from the war are treated like dirt. They get treatment at first and then it declines fast. It all boils down to people taking control of a government that is supposed to work for them and not the other way around.

    I had to complain about the pain I was in for 2 years before they would do anything. When they did do some thing, it was to late. I have to be on heavy pain killers, like Morphine, for the next 30 years, because I am to young to have my knee replaced.

    Also since they did not want to do the paperwork, I was screwed out of $24,000 by the military. They said the paperwork would take to long, so they took the easy way out. Did not find out until too late.
