No good deed goes unpunished: Semper Fi edition

Filed under: Uncategorized — antitango @ 6:43 pm

A Marine (no longer active duty) saw a kid getting bullied by a full grown group of 20+ year old “men”.  While the kid was waiting with his dad, racial slurs get thrown about and the kid and his dad are about to get beaten.

In steps Wen Jones, a 43 year old Marine, to help the kid and his dad out.

No good deed goes unpunished.

The beat down left the Jupiter resident, former Marine and father of two needing surgery to fix a fracture under his eye. He also had stitches all over his face, including his tear duct.

But three months after the attack at Juno Beach Park, still occasionally a little foggy from the concussion, Jones says it was worth it.

“I’m not happy to have been injured pretty severely, but at the same time, I ask myself, would I do it again? You know, it was the right thing to do, so I probably would,” he said.

He paid a high price, but being the man that he is, he doesn’t regret it.  That’s character right there.  As for the people standing around opening your cell phone cameras, you’re pieces of excrement.

Semper Fi, brother.
