I was very dismayed to read this in our local paper today just days before Veteran's Day. No matter what your opinion is on this or any other war, these Veterans volunteered to risk their lives for their country and should not be subjected to this type of insult. I for one am very thankful for the service of all Veterans throughout the history of this country and respect them for all they have done. Marine's SUV vandalized York, PA - Disabled Marine Anthony Gurreri tries to shelter his daughters from the harsh realities of fighting in Iraq. But when he awoke to the word "killer" etched and painted on his family's SUV Monday in West York, it was impossible to hide from the girls. "They don't understand what he went through," Stacie Gurreri, Anthony Gurreri's wife, said of their children, ages 5 and 10. "For someone to call their dad a killer is hurtful." When the Gurreris went to bed about midnight, their 2003 Yukon Denali was parked in the driveway. By 6 a.m. Monday, when Stacie Gurreri got up for work, the car has been damaged on all sides. Spray paint on the hood read "Go back to Iraq and kill more women and kids," and "muder" -- a misspelling of "murder" -- was scrawled on the driver-side door. The back window was shattered, the frame bent skyward, and all four tires were slashed. From the back it seemed like a random act, but once she read the messages on the hood, Stacie Gurreri started to cry. Anthony Gurreri, who suffers from seizures, has been home from Iraq for four years. Some neighbors know he served, but it's not something they talk much about, Stacie Gurreri said. "Why all of a sudden after four years of being home?" she said. The Gurreris have insurance to pay for the damage, but they can't take back what the children saw. "It's a side I don't expose my kids to," Stacie Gurreri said. "They just know he went and fought for their country. To them, he's just Daddy."
