Two people were sitting in a car in Venice, Ill., one morning after a Vietnam veteran had driven his friend home. Two thugs approached, one of whom pulled a gun in an attempted robbery. The veteran drew his own firearm and fired at both men, killing one. “Not only did he save himself, his friend and protect everyone around them, he may have saved another individual’s life if these people had continued to do this,” said Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons.
