What this vet did next was just amazing…

Without a doubt, this would-be burglar was a moron to try to rob a former army paratrooper.  What is even more moronic is he tried to throw a punch at him.  WARNING to all criminals – the win will always go to the veteran.

That story in itself is pretty badass, but what Army veteran Andrew Myers did next is even more amazing.

The whole incident was captured on surveillance camera.  Myers set it to music and posted it on YouTube.  Then it went viral.  Myers, who suffers from PTSD, used the incredible attention the video was getting to support other vets also suffering from this condition.

You can watch the Myers interview below, and scroll to see the knock-down “Burglar Meets Paratrooper” video.  Then scroll to the bottom to find out how this veteran is using this experience to help other veterans .

A Seattle homeowner fistfights a burglar into submission on his front lawn—and the whole thing is caught on camera, even the intruder’s arrest. ..

…When Andrew Myers spotted the would-be burglar on his surveillance cameras Saturday night, he confronted him at his own front door.

“I said ‘what’s up?’ And he said ‘I live here,’ and I said ‘definitely do not live here,’ and he said ‘who are you?’ And I said ‘I definitely do live here buddy,’”…

…Myers said the man’s poorly timed punch – “He takes a big step backwards and throws a big haymaker that’s under the camera” – was his cue to get the rest of the brawl on camera, including when police officers made their arrest…

…Myers immediately recognized the guy because he’d seen him on surveillance footage when he broke into the basement Tuesday night and actually spent the night there.

The couple didn’t know he was there until they found clothes and cigarette butts he left behind and reviewed their video…

…The suspect didn’t steal anything except for a dress shirt; you could see on camera he managed to button it up backwards.

“We joked all week about setting this place up ‘Home Alone’ style and having marbles roll down,” Myers said, laughing…

Myers is a smart guy.  He’s also a grateful guy.  He credits his therapy dog for helping him cope with his PTSD.  He is saddened by the 22 veteran suicides a day and states on his Facebook page that many could be alive today to defend their homes if they had a therapy dog.  Myers realized his viral video could help his fellow veterans.  He set up a Facebook page:  Mr Wrong Charity House .  His page supports Paws and Stripes,  a non-profit organization that trains sheltered and rescued dogs to become service dogs for vets with brain injuries and PTSD.  Check out his pages now.


We salute you, Andrew Myers.
