I posted this article and my comment on a couple other forums, and got some interesting replys/comments. Some had me scratching my head. There were some semi-apologists for this woman, and other's wanted more background. Many resented any connection to a political "bent" or "anti-war" connection being inferred. I know that we all have differing views on the war or any wars with some folks, but I really think that this is a sad commentary on a lot of folks, and how they view our military folks that "answer the call" regardless of their personal feelings might be. I also give the soldier a lot of credit for keep his, "cool", and letting the proper authorities handle this "assault". Hopefully this gal wasn't Hepatitus A, B, or C, positive.

The incident happened over the Thanksgiving holiday. Maggi approached a soldier from the 10th Mountain Division, who apparently was not in uniform, and asked if he was a soldier. When he said yes, Maggi allegedly spit in his face. WFBL's news service is supplied by television station WTVH, which has nothing posted yet about the incident on its website. Syracuse.com carries this blurb: • Woman accused of spitting on soldier A Syracuse woman was charged after a Fort Drum soldier accused her of spitting on him without provocation at Hancock Airport, Syracuse police said. On January 18 of this year, Lauren Maggi, 34, of Thurber Street, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Someone tell me again about how the Left supports the troops, but not their mission. Update: More details: Jason Jones, 21, told police a woman he did not know walked up to him near the United Airlines ticket counter, asked him if he was a Fort Drum solider and, when he responded that he was, spat in his face. Police searched the airport garage and located a woman fitting the description that Jones provided, who was later identified as Maggi. Police escorted her into the terminal, where Jones identified her as the woman who had spit on him. A second soldier on the scene supported Jones' accusation, police said. Maggi offered no explanation for her conduct, police said. She could not be reached for comment Thursday night.
