It is, without a doubt, very frustrating to think about how three Navy SEALs who did nothing less than their jobs – and did it well – were court-martialed over the accusations of a wanted criminal who was behind the brutal murder of four American citizens, one of whom served with the Navy SEALs at one point in his career.
With Mother’s Day one week away, and the trial of Matthew McCabe just a day away, we could not help but remember a previous post that we did on the mothers that the fallen of Fallujah left behind. Next Sunday, they will yet again spend a Mother’s Day without their beloved sons, whose lives were brutally cut short in the most horrifying way possible.
Katy Helvenston-Wettengel – the mother of slain contractor and former Navy SEAL Scott Helvenston – will forever remember the brutality of it all, upon finding out that her son’s heart had been cut out.
Donna Zovko, mother of Jerry Zovko, was one of those who spoke out and lent her support to Matthew McCabe. She drove nine hours from Cleveland, Ohio to Norfolk, Virginia in December, during the arraignment of Matthew McCabe and Julio Huertas. Touching photos that showed Donna, a rosary in hand, embracing the young SEAL who participated in catching the man allegedly behind her son’s death, are shown in a post on United American Patriots.
The outrageous accusations against the SEALs who were able to make a significant milestone in the fight for justice for the brutal deaths of four American citizens, for us, dishonor their memory.
While the exoneration of Matthew McCabe will certainly not bring these men’s lives back, we at least give more importance to giving justice to their deaths. It is, perhaps, the least that can be done for the mothers who will miss them all the more on M
