It sounds like something from a movie: American servicemen on vacation in Europe take down a terrorist armed to the teeth and save countless innocent lives. As we all know, this is not from a movie. It actually happened in France last week. Out of uniform and off duty, these young Americans put their lives on the line with no thought for their own safety. A horrific massacre was avoided because of the immense bravery and quick thinking of these men. What also gets your attention is the fact that they appear to be pretty ordinary guys. They were not part of some elite special operations force who luckily happened to be there at that time. They were just regular members of our military who rose to the very demanding occasion. Thank God they did.
