They’ve already been given France’s highest award, but two U.S. service members may be in line for additional honors for their role in subduing a heavily-armed attacker on a high-speed train headed to Paris on Friday. Both he and Skarlatos will arrive in Germany Monday afternoon, where Stone will receive additional medical treatment.
“I feel like I’m in a dream, it’s unreal”, the Sacramento State University student said as he attended the prestigious event. The university is thrilled, he said, to have such a courageous man on campus.
“We need to have a celebration”, Nelsen stated.
On Monday, Mayor Kevin Johnson tweeted that a parade was being planned to honor the three young men.
“Airman Stone and Specialist Alex Skarlatos are two reasons why – on duty and off – ours is the finest fighting force the world has ever known”, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said in a statement on Saturday. In fact, the three friends likely won’t lack for invites to fetes and parades, big and small.
“Adrenalin mostly just takes over”, Skarlatos said. “That’s on our want listing”. Skarlatos recently finished a nine-month deployment in Afghanistan. He is learning at the area people college and hopes for a profession in regulation enforcement, stated his stepmother Karen Skarlatos. Then they’re being flown straight to New York, where she assumes they will sit for interviews.
“They actually need to have a day that they will should themselves in Germany, however whether or not or not they are going to get that, I do not know”, Karen Skarlatos stated.
Dickson said he, too, was returning from Europe and that he had made plans to meet Sadler during their European vacation. But his military training undoubtedly helped him to prevail in a life-or-death struggle with the gunman; it was his military training, too, that led him to search other carriages of the train to make sure the gunman didn’t have accomplices.
Under French law, authorities have until later Tuesday to decide on charges against Ayoub El-Khazzani, who is accused of trying to attack the train from Amsterdam to Paris.
French President Francois Hollande is to thank the Americans and the Briton in person at the Elysee Palace on Monday, while US President Barack Obama called the three Americans and congratulated them on their “extraordinary bravery”. Sadler, a Sacramento State senior, is the son of an Oak Park preacher.
