    Recognizing the Hero of NAS Corpus Christi



    According to the FBI, "the incredible acts of heroism by the NASCC Military Policewoman guarding the entrance to the base, saved many lives yesterday".

    The active duty U.S. Navy military police officer stationed at the Ocean Drive gate has probably checked thousands of IDs and allowed access to thousands of authorized people at NAS Corpus Christi.

    On the morning of May 21, 2020 a terrorist tried to get past her. That terrorist, Adam Salem Alsahli picked the wrong gate guard to try to get past. He shot her point blank in the chest and then attempted to drive onto the base.

    He didn't get far.

    She took the bullet dead center in her chest, but was saved by her Kevlar vest, which had a steel, ceramic-coated plate over her sternum designed to protect the heart and vital organs.

    The impact knocked her off of her feet however despite her obvious pain she quickly got right back up and hit the emergency button that activated a very strong pop up barricade, which stopped and disabled the terrorist’s vehicle.

    Then, as he was going for a rifle he brought with him, she shot him back.

    He never made it past the gate as her shots killed him.

    My god Obama must have cried his little heart out when he heard that a White chick killed one of his Muslim buddies.

    There should be an investigation to see if he knew Obama. Lip print his butt & see if Obama's lip prints are still there.

    I had to do another post because I didn't want to degrade this hero's action by saying that ex presidents name on the post.

    Great going & a real hero! Something that people don't think about is that being a gate guard is one of the most boring jobs in the world. It's hard to keep sharp doing it day in & day out & it takes a special type person. This is one of them!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ohhh, I'm gonna get an earful for this.

    I'm glad she did what she did. I'm glad she survived a shot and gladder that she killed another one of Allah's devotees. And I'm gladder the Devout Adherent to the Religion of Pieces, is now compost.

    But...HERO? No. This is a sentry's DUTY. She did it. Did it in an exemplary manner. Commendation due, yes.

    Hero? No. Heroism is going above and beyond. I really don't see that, here.

    It's part of the liberal corruption of the culture, to confuse heroes, victims and perpetrators.

    The guys getting off the landing craft at Omaha Beach weren't heroes. They didn't ask for that. They were as frightened and sick as the Jewish cattle-car riders that the troops were going to rescue in a few weeks.

    Those troops, like the camp prisoners, were victims.

    True. Audie Murphy the most decorated war hero of WWII said he was never a hero he was just trying his damndest to stay alive and just happened to be the only left standing when the shooting stopped and the smoke cleared. My Dad was WWII war hero as well and he said he was never a hero just doing his job and trying to stay alive.

    0bama's lip prints are most likely somewhere other than on his posterior.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    Seems like gate keeping to me. Under that sort of definition heroes don't really exist. Everyone who earned a medal of honor was simply doing their job. Same goes for EMS, Fire, Police, and everything else.

    Yes, it is gate-keeping.

    She did her job splendidly. Better than most would.

    A commendation for this is in order.

    But I bristle when I hear the term "hero" tossed out. A passer-by who pulls an infant out of a burning car, and gets hurt himself... that's a hero. Not a gate sentry doing what sentries are to do.
