RIP, SFC John Lilyea

https://thisainthell.us/blog/?p=80829

John will be sorely missed. He was a stalwart in the veteran community, online and in his day to day life. I regret I never got to meet him personally.

Prayers out to his family.

On behalf of SOCNET I want to extend sincere condolences to our Bothers and Sisters at This Ain't Hell Blog. We'll never foget how John stood shoulder to shoulder with us and even took the fight to a shovel wielding phoney that was threatening the livelihood of some members.

Semper Fi, SB

RIP

I was not familiar with SFC Lilyea, I should probably hit the This Ain't Hell website more often. Great video of him reading the riot act to some phony by the name of Christopher Duke.

Amazing how he shut the guy down.
