Today marks 17-years since Captain Gordon Hess was savagely murdered. He sustained more than 20 stab wounds; many fatal wounds in the chest alone. Yet, miraculously, the Army CID claims he committed suicide.They never even conducted a proper criminal investigation.
Military Families for Justice would like to also pay homage to his widow Dorene. Dorene is a wonderful human being who fought for the truth almost entirely alone. She continues to display courage and dignity that all of the unfortunate military families who have experienced the same type of injustice can use as a model in their own pursuit of justice.
Dorene, you and your children are never far from our thoughts. May peace be with you always.
