There’s a certain type of person that joins the military typically. They are usually givers and helpers. These are individuals who are willing to sacrifice everything to help others and protect them. Even when they are not on duty, many times you will see these same people volunteer during a crisis like Hurricane Florence.
Such is the case with a North Carolina army medic who voluntarily gave ten days of his off time to help those impacted by the storm. This hero soldier worked day and night to help victims during and after the hurricane.
Unfortunately, when he got home he was the recipient of a sick ‘thank you’ when he found that his house had been raided by looters. National Guardsman Luis Ocampo, 24, told the media that these criminals literally cleaned out his home in Charlotte.
According to officials, the thieves took a gun, a large TV, a gaming system, a laptop Ocampo uses for schoolwork and even some specialty coins and jewelry. When Ocampo says they cleaned out his house he wasn’t wrong and it looks like they had a snack while doing it. Since most people evacuated for the storm, the looters weren’t afraid of being seen or caught so they probably took their sweet time.
What’s even worse is that Ocampo lives with his girlfriend and one-year-old son there. Thank goodness they were not home when this happened. I hate to think what would have happened to them. Ocampo could have lost a lot more than material things.
“I don’t know how people can be so terrible,” said Ocampo’s girlfriend, Kailey Finch. I don’t either, but some people are just plain evil and have no soul or conscience. Something like this brings the worst out in certain individuals.
“If I was (to) do that to someone, I feel like I would feel really bad afterwards. I would be like, I see this family struggling and I just messed up their life even worse,” said Finch. “It’s irreplaceable. It’s not something you can get back,” said Finch.
Beyond losing the valuables, Finch said her heart also breaks for her hardworking guardsman. “He does a lot for everybody. He always wants to make sure that everybody gets help,” she said.
The family says that they are considering an alarm system for their home. I think that is a great idea. You can get very good ones for very little these days. A big ole dog wouldn’t hurt either.
They suspect that the looters broke into the house through the back window. From there, they ransacked the place. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police are investigating the break-in and theft. Currently, they have no suspects.
When the community where Ocampo lives heard about what happened, they proceeded to pitch in and help him and his family recover from all of this. That’s what neighbors and friends do… they take care of their fellow neighbors in their hour of need.
A woman who worked with Ocampo in the National Guard named Mary Elise Capron organized a GoFundMe page to help this hero medic. People wanted to give to a man who had given so much to them. The initial goal was $5,000, but by this afternoon, the page had raised just about $15,000. Not too bad at all.
“I am honored to know him and cannot believe something so terrible could happen to someone so dedicated to the service, his family and school,” Capron wrote on the fundraising page.

Here is the full text from GoFundMe:
“Thank you so much to all who have donated, your generosity and willingness to help a soldier in need is simply amazing. The goal set has now been surpassed almost 3 times as much! With the support from the unit, family, and friends Luis and I are confident he can come back from this and rebuild. We are so grateful for these donations beyond belief. We will soon be ending donations and hope that everyone understands. We do not want to take anyone’s generosity for granted. Thank you so much again, may God bless you all.”
Wow… what a great friend Capron is and she is doing the right thing by not taking too much from people as well. I’m impressed.
It’s hard to imagine just how big a scumbag a person would have to be to loot another’s home… especially a soldier who is out helping others get through a life-changing catastrophe like Florence. I hope the police catch them and I am thrilled that at least some of what Ocampo lost will be restored.
Thief Steals Combat Vet’s Military Mementos – ‘I’d Give My Soul To Get Those Things Back’
Stealing from others is a despicable act in & of itself, but stealing from a veteran who fought for our freedom & security is a whole other ball game. What kind of scumbag would do this kind of thing? We’re hoping this vet gets his belongings back.
Fox 4 Kansas City reported:
“A Mobile veteran served our country overseas more than a decade ago, but the mementos he brought home were stolen.
Carl Sanders Jr. served for four years and had one tour in Iraq.
Most of his memories were packed up in a duffel bag, but it ended up being stolen.
“I don’t regret one second of anything I’ve done serving my country and the people I served with,” he said.
To remember that time in his life he packed up a bag filled with most of his memories. Things like an Iraqi flag and helmet he found on a mission, but most importantly his uniform.
“It’s the boots I lived in, I fought in,” Sanders said. “A soldiers boots and soldiers uniform that’s more important than anything.”
Losing those keepsakes is difficult for Sanders to swallow as he tries to never forget his military service.
“Those things actually reminded me of who I served with, where I’ve been, some of the things we’ve had to do and I don’t ever want to forget that,” Sanders said. “I don’t ever want to let that go.”
While he still has some things, a few pictures and some patches, what was stolen from him goes beyond a uniform.
“I still got a lot of memories in my head, some are hard to remember, some are hard to forget, but as time goes it kind of fades away,” Sanders said. “That’s why I’m glad I do have some of these things, I can always pick up these pictures and look back and always remember.”
While he holds onto what he does have, he hopes the thief realizes what was taken.
“Outside of monetary value things go a lot further than that,” Sanders said. “You never know what something might mean to someone, maybe the smallest little object.”
A soldier’s treasured memories from a half a world away, stolen from a man who served this country.
“God forgive me, but I would give my soul to get those things back,” Sanders said.
From what little he does have left, he is currently putting together a scrapbook for his family so his service is always remembered.”
Somali Whose Deportation was Thwarted by Passengers Is Gang Rapist With Links To ISIS
I have no understanding of people who would allow foreigners needs to take precedence over their own citizens.
These deranged SJW lunatics should have been arrested. When does the left not ever defend a terrorist?
A Somali man whose deportation was thwarted when passengers on the aeroplane taking him out of the country began complaining is a convicted gang rapist linked to an Islamic State fighter.
29-year-old Yaqub Ahmed was about to be returned to Somalia via a commercial flight to Istanbul, Turkey, but around a dozen ‘social justice warrior’ passengers on the aeroplane became aware of his situation when he began groaning and wailing.
They started complaining “They’re separating him from his family” and chanting “take him off the plane” in rowdy scenes recorded by several people on their mobile phones.
Rather than throw off the disruptive passengers or have them arrested for obstructing the course of justice, however, officials buckled to the mutinous flyers and took Ahmed off the flight, while his supporters applauded and shouted: “You’re free, man!”
However, the Mail on Sunday has now revealed that the busybodies were championing a convicted gang rapist, and that one of his accomplices travelled to the Islamic State to fight as a jihadist after their crime.

In August 2007, Ahmed was part of a four-strong rape gang which lured a 16-year-old girl who had become separated from her friends on a night out to a flat in Crouch End, North London, pretending they were waiting for her there.
Ahmed and his accomplices then took turn raping the teenager, who was only saved when neighbours overheard her cries for help and rang the police. All denied the crime, but were convicted with the help of extensive DNA evidence.
The judge sentenced them to a relatively short nine years each — although police detective Emma Bird seemed happy with the terms, saying they “reflect[ed] the seriousness of this offence” — but criminals almost never serve their full term in the United Kingdom, and Ahmed was out after a paltry four years.
It is understood that fellow rapist Ondogo Ahmed travelled to Syria to fight for the Islamic State just months after his release, while accomplice Adnan Mohamud — like Ahmed, a Somali granted refugee status — is still in Britain.
“We need to deport these people and members of the public should not be allowed to obstruct the proper course of justice,” commented Tory backbencher Philip Hollobone.
“Officials accompanying the deportee need to react appropriately to passengers who do not know what is going on. To simply walk off in the face of passenger confusion is not good enough.”
Britain’s record both tracking and deporting illegal migrants in general is very poor.
