Decorated former Marine Chris Marquez wasn’t the only Iraq War vet brutally beaten in an attack on Feb. 12 in Washington.
Not far from where Marquez was assaulted on that frigid night, 35-year-old Michael Schroeder, also a Marine, was dragged between two cars in the Glover Park neighborhood and brutally beaten, his family told WUSA9. Police found him face down with his head beaten up and his cash missing.
Authorities were notified after a man and his son in a taxi saw Schroeder on the ground.
“It’s an angel whoever found him and I’m very, very grateful,” said Schroeder’s mother Diedre told the station. “Michael could’ve died that night.”
Schroeder was diagnosed with a fractured skill and a severe concussion. His family told WUSA9 Schroeder received staples in his head and could hardly speak to them in the hospital.
