Aimed Right for his Heart
The Kentucky Enquirer has an article on a War vet that shows he still has some fight left in him.
A 92-YEAR-OLD farmer and World War II veteran who fatally shot an intruder in his Kentucky home says he acted in self-defence and aimed “right for his heart.”
Being robbed for the third time this year, he decided enough was enough. In April, thieves stole 90 head of cattle from the field behind his house. In August, burglars took from his house a television, a few thousands dollars cash and a personal check they unsuccessfully
tried to cash and ripped his phone out of the wall.
“I can’t leave the damn house to do my work outside,” said Jones, removing his World War II veteran cap with his right hand and running his left through his thin white hair. Jones has lived alone since his wife, Virginia Pearl, died in 2006. The couple had no children. Jones grew up hunting squirrels in Boone County and volunteered for the forerunner to the U.S. Air Force in 1941. He went through weapons training in the military.
Good job sir…..
