Chaos in New Orleans Continues, but the media is bored now that it cannot be blamed on Bush…

Posted by mrfixit on November 2, 2010

Of note, an Iraq war veteran marine was killed trying to protect his wife following the Marine Corps Ball, in the supposedly safe French quarter!

Are Marines in more danger at home than in combat?!  Here they walk unarmed, and without armor, expecting safety, at least in Iraq and Afghanistan they are fully equipped and prepared. 

“A 23-year-old Marine who lived in Metairie was fatally stabbed following an argument with a man who defamed the Marine’s wife. The suspect yelled derogatory comments at Ryan Lekosky’s wife as the couple walked about 3:30 a.m. near the intersection of Dauphine and Iberville streets in the French Quarter, police said. Lekosky tried to intervene in the altercation between his wife and the suspect. The suspect turned on Lekosky, stabbing him several times. The suspect then returned to his vehicle and drove away on Dauphine Street, toward Canal Street. Lekosky died from his wounds.

Lekosky and his wife had attended the Marine Corps Ball earlier in the evening. Marine Forces Reserve headquarters in New Orleans released a statement Monday, offering its condolences to Lekosky’s family and friends.

“At this time we are working in cooperation with (the) New Orleans Police Department as they continue to investigate the cause of Sgt. Lekosky’s death,” according to the statement.

Lekosky was an active duty aviation supply specialist assigned to the Marine aviation support detachment at the Naval Air Station-Joint Reserve Base in Belle Chasse since April 2009.

He enlisted in the Marine Corps in 2005, in Nueces, Texas. His decorations include two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, a Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, and he was decorated for his service in Iraq and in the war on terrorism.”
