GoArmy, thanks very much for adding the personal details to the story. Hearing it from you makes it even more real and horrifying.

Good luck to you.

    Mr. Cox you are a very humble man.  I just wanted to throw in my own kudos.  I know how it goes myself with these incidents and it can be very traumatizing.  This is a feel-good story but the emotions in situations like these are anything but.

    That child doesn't yet have the capacity to understand what you guys did for him but I'm sure one day he will.  As for you; I hope YOU all know that the actions you took requires special kinds of people.  The award is very well deserved.

     On a side note I TOTALLY agree with your assessment of DV in music.  DV ruins lives and breeds new generations of violent criminals and they don't seem to give a damn.  Sad indeed.

                Bob shared the link to this post with me. GoArmy I don't think we've met yet. But I wanted to tell you this is a amazing story and proof of the goodness of men. You have 1 monster trying to hurt the world's most precious gift-a child. But thanks to 4 brave men he was stopped. My hats off to all of you. Thank you

                  Great Job, not that there is anything funny about the article but I just noticed the sailors serve aboard the USS FREEDOM!!!

                  A few years ago, billionaire Warren Buffett advised  "Investors should remember that excitement and expenses are their enemies. And if they insist on trying to time their participation in equities, they should try to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy only when others are fearful."
