A few of the men who saved the day in the French train shooting a few months ago have had quite a bumpy ride since they returned home to the United States.
After the shootings in Roseburg, Oregon it was revealed Alek Skarlatos, 23, who was one of the guardsman on the train that fateful day was actually supposed to be in attendance at the school where the shooting took place.
Fortunately he signed a contract with Dancing With the Stars and avoided the tragic shooting.
But Spencer Stone, the U.S. Airmen who lost part of his hand in the attack, wasn’t so lucky.
Just a few days ago it was revealed he was stabbed multiple times after defending the honor of a young woman at a bar.

Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone, who helped take down a gunman on a train in Belgium, was stabbed four times in the chest in Sacramento early Thursday morning, Air Force Times has learned.
Stone is listed in serious condition at the University of California Davis Medical Center.
“A1C Spencer Stone has been transported to a local hospital, and is currently being treated for injury,” Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Karns said in an email in Air Force Times. “The incident is currently under investigation by local law enforcement.”
Sacramento Deputy Police Chief Ken Bernard said Stone was with four other friends – one male and three females – when they got into a dispute with another group of people that culminating in Stone being stabbed.
“He is currently being treated for what appears to be non-life threatening but very significant injuries,” Bernard said during a news conference on Thursday. “The assault does not appear to be a random act. It’s believed to be related to a nightclub incident.”
The incident was not an act of terrorism or a hate crime, said Bernard, who repeatedly declined to answer questions about how the altercation started. Police are looking for two suspects, described as Asian men wearing white t-shirts and blue jeans who drove a gray or black Toyota Camry.
Police have not yet spoken to Stone, so they don’t know if he was drinking before the assault, said Bernard, who added that police believe “folks in his party were drinking that evening.”
It’s tragic he made it out of such a scary situation in France only to be confronted with an equally terrifying situation here at home.
Here’s the one thing you’re not going to hear about this story though.
No way in heck are liberals going to demand sharp pointy objects be banned so we can prevent stabbings.
But in the same breath they will scream for guns to be taken away when something like this happens.
Don’t you find that a bit ironic?
