Sorry everyone for writing a post and confusing you it's his wife writing it I'm very sorry . We had court a few days ago for the two adults and we were told that thy were pleading guilty for what they did to my husband and the turtle. When we got there and was seating in the court room 3 waiting for the judge we were talking to each other and saying to others that they were pleading guilty but turns out that they didn't . My husband and I were upset and wondering why they get a slap on the wrist . We talk to our attorney and he told us that they went together . My family isnt happy with the results that were said from the judge . Thank you everyone for keeping us in your prayers .

For those of you commenting on how he is a vet and gets free medical care, I have a few friends that are vets and it is almost impossible to get help or appointments. For example, I have a friend waited for an appointment for an eye exam for over six months, and let me tell you he wears bottle glasses, he finally gave up and went to one of those mall places. That, yes, is a minor thing but is just one example. The vet medical system is messed up. Also, he probably was using public transportation, but now with his new and multiple issues, a car would be a boon. These thugs beat the crap out of him. He was being a good person and it could have been much worse. He deserves applause and a leg up.

Thank you Mr Blough for running outside to try to stop these derelicts from hurting something innocent. It just happened to be a turtle. You saw something helpless and you didn't care what it was. You saw injustice. I commend you .. You are a rare person. I know that if someone didn't think twice about helping something in distress .. They wouldn't hesitate to help a human. May God bless you and your family! Thank you Mr Blough!!

Whoever said "all vets receive free medical help", Ummmmm, NO. You are partially correct, we can go to the VA, if they don't cancel our appointment...but THAT could be 3-6 month wait for Gary. I'm retired with TRICARE, still, I pay a LOT of money for co pays etc...and that is for a line of duty injury. Anyway, be quiet if you aren't here to help Gary. To Gary and your wife, please message me on Facebook. I can put you in touch with a fellow AMVET who is a Veteran Service Officer in Lee County, FLA. He can help you get connected with the right folks in Volusia County. Thank you.

Thank you so much for your efforts to save the turtle. You're my hero! If everyone took actions like your family - your wife for making the effort to inform you about the animal cruelty and your actions to protect the turtle - the world would be a much better place. I'm so sorry for what happened to you and wish you a speedy recovery. Please know that your actions saved countless animals and humans from enduring future violence at the hands of these sociopaths. All animals can feel pain and deserve to be protected and for anyone who turns a blind eye to animal cruelty and says "it is only an animal," they should know that the FBI has even recognized the link between cruelty to animals and violence against humans, which unfortunately was displayed in your situation. Many of the famous serial killers got their start torturing small animals. I'll thrilled about the outpouring of kindness you're been receiving and hope it's just the beginning of better days ahead!

Retired vets, get Tri-Care, but some Vets may have 3 years or 10 years in, they aren't retired, so they don't get health care at all. Disabled vets, will get healthcare. It still isn't free, Those vets that do get health care have co-pays also.

Obviously him being attacked isn't service connected! Whatever VA disability compensation he gets has nothing to do with this. So yeah, he can go to the VA for care but he'd still have to come out of pocket for co pay or all of it because results of the attack aren't service connected injuries. I am a Marine Vet, by the way.

You get reduced cost medical care from the VA if you are honorable discharge injuries that occurred during service and are deemed service connected you will receive care for that injury only for free after it goes through the disability panel which takes 6 to 12 months to decide

Your heroic rescue of the turtle against those abusers was all I needed to know you are a good person, being a Vet is only farther proof of you dedication to service of others. You do not need to show me any records Sir, I don't donate to too many causes, there are a lot of fakes. But I have no worries about you. I hope this personal agrevation in your life is soon resolved .
