Ranger Up CEO and Veteran, Nick Palmisciano shares the story of 90-year-old WWII vet Bob Strait and his 85-year-old wife Nancy Strait who were brutally attacked in their Tulsa home March 14th, 2012. Bob was brutally beaten and shot with a BB gun, Nancy was sexually assaulted, brutally beaten and died of her injuries. Today, 19-year-old Tyrone Woodfork is in custody and charged with first-degree murder, burglary, assault with a dangerous weapon and two counts of armed robbery, but police are still looking for four/five additional suspects who committed the crime. Bob Strait was a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne Division and jumped in on D-Day during World War II, he was awarded the bronze star. Bob was also awarded the purple heart for his injuries but turned the award down along with any government aid. Nick is asking Americans along with John Stewart and Stephen Colbert to push this story out and so it airs mainstream media. A Trust for Bob and Nancy Strait has been set up with a goal of $20,000 the current donation amount is at $3,000.
Mr. Strait gave much for his country, the very least that can be done for him and Mrs. Strait is for this story to be front and center, catch the perps, and have justice swiftly carried out. Sickening to think of what other news takes center stage.
Bob and Nancy Strait fell in love after World War II and were married more than 65 years.
Incidentally: Anyone know if Tyrone has been charged with a hate crime, or is this atrocity still considered a love crime?
I did...but of course I live in OK.
Of course....he hasn’t been charged with a hate crime.
Actually, Jessie was just here and spoke not a word on the Straits. Al was supposed to come, too, but withdrew at the last minute.
Thank you, FRiend.
Tyrone was getting even for the death of Trayvon Martin. We can't think it was a black on white crime.
Al Sharpton? Jessie Jackson? Barack Obama? ABC,NBC,CBS, CNN,FOX?
It wasn't a white on black crime, so the LIBERAL Media don't CARE about it.
Our media is a disgrace..............
AMEN, it is!!
Those earrings should come in handy in prison.
Hey... ever noticed that most of these people involved in these race/hate/thug/etc crimes involve a person whose name starts with a “T” ????
