Chris Herbert is a veteran of the British Army, a soldier who lost his leg in combat while serving in Iraq in 2007. As CNN reports, a bomb went off next to his vehicle, an explosion that injured two more soldiers, and took the life of one more.

In the wake of this traumatic event, Herbert has found that those around often expect him to be Islamophobic, and hold those of the Muslim faith responsible for his losses. Herbert absolutely does not subscribe to these beliefs, and was so upset by these assumptions that he took to Facebook to set the record straight.
