Murder victims like John P. Wheeler III, who leave this earth in the most violent ways, deserve justice in this life as well as the next. I know they’ll get it later, but is justice blind in the here and now for victims like this ex-Pentagon official and Vietnam vet who stepped out on a precipice — and took on the world — to build a memorial to the most hated military men in the history of America?
Will John Wheeler’s killer get away with snuffing out his life in a senseless act that borders on treason and all things American? The killer of another military man, my brother, didn’t get away with murder and neither should John Wheeler’s killer.
If the family of a lesser known Marine sought and received justice for his murder, how can we as a nation not bond together to get it for a man who’s worst act known was to roll up his sleeves and do battle for others?
Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial Champ
Was John Wheeler perfect? No. Was my own brother? No. Does that give a killer the right to rob them of their life? No, again.
Is justice blind to murders committed against the lesser known more than the prominent? No, as my brother’s killer has been caught, convicted and sentenced already; it is John Wheeler’s who hasn’t.
Is justice blind to the poor, favoring the wealthy? No, again. My brother’s case is just one that proves that. And justice isn’t blind to the color of your skin, as John Wheeler is supposed to be the more favored race, right?
Justice isn’t blind to the Vietnam Veteran’s memorial champ John Wheeler–America is, and that is the greatest tragedy of all.
For a man willing to speak out for others, John P. Wheeler III is having very few speak out and do battle for him by finding his killer. I’d expect it from the opposition who attempted to thwart his Vietnam Veteran Memorial or any other cause he advocated. I wouldn’t expect it from those who benefited from his voice and support.
Rise up America. One of you, somewhere in this country John Wheeler served, knows something that would help break this case.
A Call to Arms
One of the 2.7 million Vietnam veteran family members whose loved ones name graces the Vietnam Veteran Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. could hold the missing key to his case–or know someone who does.
One person besides the killer or killers may even know who put him in that dumpster–or why. Don’t let that secret die with you. Don’t die a cowards death by remaining silent. Speak up and out.
You are not just withholding information in a murder investigation; you are allowing a soldier to go to his grave without the honor due him: the justice he deserves. You are betraying a country and someone who died to give you the freedom to do so. You owe him.
