Vet Tweets He’s Going To Kill Himself – James Woods Launches Effort To Save Him

James Woods is an awesome guy. He used to follow me on Twitter before my account was suspended on the same day Facebook took the pages of my co-worker, triple-amputee Airman Brian Kolfage. Woods helped me on a few projects, one, an effort I began to get Congress to appoint a select committee to investigate what happened in Benghazi. Because of him & others, we succeeded in getting the attention of many elected representatives.

Being the good guy he is, Woods sprang into action last night to save a veteran who said he was going to commit suicide.

Via The Daily Wire:

On Monday night, actor James Woods went all-in to help save a suicidal veteran who had tweeted that he was going to kill himself. Although the vet deleted his tweets, a look at Woods’ tweets gives a pretty clear idea of the dialogue Woods initiated and Woods’ efforts to help keep the vet talking while Woods launched a search to find him. In the process, Woods showed his empathy by acknowledging that he, too, like most people, had experienced some depression at one time in his life, and encouraged the vet to hold on so that he could be an inspiration to other vets who experience the same feelings.

Woods’ persistence may well have saved the vet’s life. Here’s how events unfolded:

“If only Andrew could see the THOUSANDS of fellow Americans who are pulling for him. It’s like he’s lost behind enemy lines and we are cheering him home, willing him to survive. Andrew, do this for the “other 21” vets a day who don’t make it home from the darkness. Stay alive!”

“The Maitland PD are checking everywhere. I gave them my number. Andrew was following me, so I thought maybe he would like to talk some things over. They’re going to give him my number if they find him and we can just talk until sunrise. A new day always helps.”

One veteran, moved by Woods’ efforts to save a fellow vet, tweeted his appreciation:

“There are so many in Hollywood who pay lip service to us veterans, or demonize us. I just want you to know that we really appreciate those who take action and stand with us in our times of need. We love you Mr Woods, thank you for all you do.”

Woods responded:

Thank you. By the way @GarySinise has a fantastic foundation that helps vets. I’ve known Gary for years, and he’s the real deal.

Then, some possible good news:

Thank you to all who were praying and helping. I’m hearing he’s home safe and sound asleep. Praise God.

I’m hoping this is true. I think now he probably needs less focus on him from all of us, while his loved ones give him the solace he needs. Thanks to all of you who worked to save a valuable life. My heart breaks for the other 21 vets and others who didn’t make it tonight.

USA Today reported:

Maitland Police Public Information Officer Lt. Louis Y. Grindle informed USA TODAY Tuesday morning that authorities were able to reach MacMasters, though his whereabouts are unknown.”Our agency was able to make contact with him by phone earlier this morning, where he advised he was OK but did not wish to have contact with law enforcement,” the emailed statement read. “Our officers are still working to try and physically locate him to determine his well-being.”

Isn’t it great that there’s a Hollywood actor, a conservative no less, who’s out there using his fame & reach to help others, especially veterans in their time of need?

Woods also helped evacuees of the California fires by using his Twitter account to spread the word about missing people & even animals.

Share this if you’re glad there are people like Woods out there helping our vets!
