WWII veteran Delbert Belton survived being wounded in action during the Battle of Okinawa only to be beaten and left for dead by two teens at the Eagles Lodge in Spokane on Wednesday evening.

Belton, 89, died from the injuries he suffered in the beating Thursday morning at Sacred Heart Medical Center.

Witnesses say the Belton was in the parking lot of the Eagles Lodge at 6410 N. Lidgerwood, adjacent to the Eagles Ice-A-Rena, around 8 p.m. Wednesday when the two male suspects attacked him.

Belton died from his injuries Thursday at Sacred Heart Medical Center.

"Shorty," as he was known by his friends at the Eagles Lodge, served in the U.S. Army in the Pacific during WWII and was shot in the leg during the Battle of Okinawa. He went on to work at Kaiser Aluminum at the company's Trentwood plant for more than 30 years.

He loved playing pool, even though he claimed he was no good at it and had been a member of the Eagles Lodge for the last four months. In addition to playing pool he loved working on cars.

Belton's wife passed away several years ago.

Spokane police are looking for two male suspects in the attack. They said the suspects are African Americans between 16 and 19 years old.

One suspect was described as heavy set and wearing all black clothing. The other was described as being about 6 feet tall and 150 pounds. There was no description of what clothing the second suspect was wearing other than a silk do-rag.

Police investigating the deadly attack on Belton are also working to obtain surveillance footage from the scene.

No, they are too busy concentrating on the 'clown' story along with the other enablers - mainstream media.

I do not mean to interrupt, but could someone please start a Preseason Week 3 thread?

Thanks in advance & God bless.

Good lord, what that guy did for this country, only to have this country's worst send him out like that.

Hopefully the same kind of end befalls these worthless thugs

He fought to make the world safe only to have it end in a country he probably couldn't even recognize any longer. Wonder if e regretted any of his sacrifice

Taking off your Klan hood might help in seeing the difference between the two cases.

I know that it might be tough for some of you to realize, but it doesn't help anybody to focus on the race of the murderers. These guys are sociopathic scum regardless of their race, and choosing to mention it when there is no evidence of a hate crime does nothing but fuel animosity between people where there shouldn't be any.

I don't read DC often (much less post in it), but I hope I'm not just being trolled...
