Marine Corps Sgt. James Lowery was on leave in his hometown of
Gardendale, Ala., at the end of an eventful year. Lowery had started
the year by marrying his sweetheart, April Leigh Fitzgerald, and
soon after he spent two months in Afghanistan. Now he was home
enjoying the holidays with family and had stopped at the drive-in
window of the local McDonalds for a quick bite. That's when a man
with a .38-cal. handgun ordered him out of his customized Chevy
Suburban. Lowery complied and got out of his SUV, but the man then
shot the Marine in the face. Lowery reached back into his vehicle,
drew a .45-cal. pistol and shot his assailant several times. The
robber, Thaddeus Antone, was pronounced dead at the scene. Lowery
was listed in fair condition at a local hospital.
