    Veteran of WWII, Korea and Vietnam Killed in Home Invasion

    Not sure if anyone posted this or if it made the national news but here is a truly sad ending to a warrior that sacrificed so much for his Country:


    Veteran of 3 wars, 85, dies in home invasion

    DAYTON — Homicide detectives are looking for the person or persons who brutally attacked an 85-year-old decorated veteran who survived three wars only to be killed inside his home.

    U.S. Army Sgt. Maj. (Ret.) North E. Woodall was found bloodied and unconscious by a neighbor about 11:30 p.m. Monday, July 27, at 1028 Walton Ave. after an apparent home invasion, police said.

    He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    The front door to the home was kicked in, and Woodall was found on the floor near the door, Lt. Brian Johns said.

    He died from blunt-force trauma to the head, Montgomery County Coroner’s Office director Ken Betz said Tuesday.

    Detective Sgt. Gary White said it’s unclear if Woodall was hit in the head by an intruder or fell during the struggle.

    It is also unclear what, if anything, was taken from his home, but White said they are certain Woodall is a homicide victim.

    Woodall served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam before retiring as an E-9 sergeant major, U.S. Army Special Forces , also known as a Green Beret.

    The recipient of two Silver Stars , Woodall had just returned in late June from an Honor Flight trip to Washington, D.C., where he and other veterans traveled in an RV to visit war memorials.

    “He was a quiet guy and kind of kept to himself,” said John Fleeger, who drove the RV . “I remember he couldn’t find his suit when we got to the hotel and he really wanted to wear his suit to see the memorial.”

    Woodall’s daughter-in-law said she took him food last week and he was in good spirits.

    Police said Woodall’s home was burglarized once before in the last five years, but he was not hurt .

    He is the city’s 26th homicide this year. Anyone with information about his death should call 333-COPS.

    I'm sorry to hear this.

    I'm glad he made it to D.C. to see the war memorials which were built to honor men and women like him.

    Words don't exist that could ever convey the level of disgust & anger I have towards these BG's.

    Mr. Woodall is part of the "greatest generation that ever lived" & a large part of why we have today's freedoms, & this is how the bottom-feeding scum of our society choose to exercise those freedoms.

    These BG's deserve a long, cold, lonely & miserable existence in a dark & isolated cell for the rest of their lives, hopefully many decades. Death would be too quick, easy & humane of a solution for these schmucks.

    My father-in-law likewise served in WWII, Korea, & Vietnam ... passed on 11/02 at age 80. Nothing but respect & admiration for their generation. My prayers & condolences to Mr. Woodall's family & friends, RIP.

    That is disgusting, absolutely disgusting. May he rest in peace, and they find the scumbag who did it and lock him in a dark hole.

    Dirty rotten scumbags, I wish I could say more but.... They should be made to suffer a slow painful death at the hands of military vets.

    These little cowards didn't have the =-ts to go after an able bodied person.

    I suspect that there aren't many 3 war veterans from that era. RIP.

    In case no one hit the link, do so and see the pic of the deceased.

    Since he is 'of color' then he has walked an even harder walk than most, as he had to overcome significant barriers, and still excelled to the height of a great career.

    Too fast for the scum that did this. I'd be banned for life for my thoughts on the appropriate punishment.

    This mans death is just one more reason the we need to stay armed. The police can not protect us they only come by after the fact to see what happened.
