Oregon Sheepdog Tribute Post

If you have not heard of the Sheepdog analogy, read this first

There were two sheepdogs at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon yesterday.   One was unarmed and shot 7 times, the other was armed and blocked from interupting the mass murder. Both are worthy of a rare Ushanka Tribute Post.  Our equivalent of a Medal of Honor.

Chris Mintz - US Army Veteran - was shot and suffered two broken legs as he charged - unarmed - the active shooter.  He is expected to survive.

John Parker - US Air Force Veteran - was armed and therefore likely in the best place to save lives, but was not allowed to approach the active scene.

U/T: GP.
