Inspiring Story: Soldier Sacrafices His Life to Save A Child

by Michael on April 1, 2012

Sgt. Dennis Weichel, 29, gave his life to save a young girl that was about to get run over by an armored vehicle in Afghanistan. He left behind three of his own children to save this one girl’s life. This has to be a testament to the kind of person he was, because he gave it no thought to try and save this little girl’s life and risk his own in the process.

I chose this story this week because there has been a lot of very horrible news coming from Afghanistan lately, which our loving news media always likes to accentuate the bad. I hope that the three children that he left behind will someday be able to find solace in the bravery their dad displayed. This is type of people I believe that serve our country in the military. God bless.
