Murder USA: Woman lingers near death after being shot by suspect Jack Braboy who hopes that once again his lawyer will ‘get him off’ – SALISBURY, MD. — Evidently, Jack Braboy didn’t get the memo that black lives matter. To celebrate Christmas, he allegedly tried to kill a black female with a blast from his gun to the head. Police say he then fled. Wicomico Sheriff Mike Lewis reports that Wicomico County deputies tracked him and jailed him on charges of attempted first and second degree murder; assault; using a firearm in the commission of a crime and reckless endangerment.

CHRISTMAS THOUGHTS FROM A MARINE

Upon returning my fourth deployment with the marines from Camp Lejeune, I had orders to Vietnam and spent 1965 as an advisor to a Vietnamese infantry battalion near the demilitarized Zone. By the time that I left Vietnam, I was a captain. Christmas was just another day, although the rear areas celebrated in one fashion or another. 1968 found me back in Vietnam first as a company commander in 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marines and later as the operations officer. We were in the field for Christmas working with Vietnamese troops. I think that we did have a hot meal, but I am not sure. It was just another day. I do recall that one of the units had some type of Christmas tree and it was decorated with soda and beer cans along with other elements that could be found in a combat area. We got a big kick out of it. I still have a picture of it in one of my scrap books. Humor and relief is where you find it.
