Those sides are in a war, the war on terror, yet you won’t be seeing any Purple Heart on the chest of war hero Matthew Cooke, because the Army says he’s just a victim of “workplace violence.”
After The Daily Star’s interview with Cooke, Rep. Chris Gibson, R-Kinderhook, a recipient of a Purple Heart and four Bronze Stars, said he would advocate for Cooke and the other Fort Hood victims to receive military honors.
“Certainly, this was a terrorist attack,” Gibson said.
Of course it was. To consider Matthew Cooke a victim of “workplace violence” instead of a war hero wounded in the service of his country is an outrage that must be corrected.
