Slain Officer's Husband Tells Story of Returning from War, Finding Christ

Benjamin Sebena told the story of his ordeal as a Marine in Iraq and subsequent growth in his faith in God.

Benjamin Sebena, husband of slain Wauwatosa police officer Jennifer Sebena, is an Iraq war veteran who suffered serious shrapnel injuries in an incident there. He tells his story in a YouTube video that also discusses his courtship of Jennifer and growth in his faith.

The video was posted by No Regrets Conference. The YouTube home page says it is "committed to equipping local church leaders to disciple men who disciple men," in part. The video is from 2010.

Sebena was being held Wednesday at the West Allis Police Department following the death, according to a police report, though the report did not indicate he had been arrested.

No way possible. I was in charge of this young man in Iraq. I refuse to believe he has anything to do with it.

Stop salivating! It is pathetic how some people enjoy the suffering of others. Lynch mob comes to mind! Freedom of expression comes with responsibility.

Shane Eckberg December 27, 2012 at 04:47 PM
Holden you are a POS I served with Sebena and he is a stand up man who was there when his country needed him not like you some coward behind his keyboard. You don't know who we are or what we have done, so shut your fing mouth and go about your day before I become interested in you

Holden, you're a moron. Being fidgety doesn't mean he's guilty, read a book sometime, jackass.

Please be peaceful and kind to each other. The amount of aggression in this blog is scary! A violent act was committed. We do not know why, not will we ever comprehend it. Use your energy to help victims of violence and their families. There are plenty of them.

WWII vets recieiving or requesting PTSD benefits- nearly Zero Desert Storm, Iraq, and Afghanistan vets- maybe 50 percent? Wonder why our country is broke?

Get active, help vets and their families , call your representative and members of Congress. This is how it works in a democracy. Exercise compassion!
