… to the victims, family and loved ones of everyone affected by the tragic Fort Hood shooting.

Now that more sober details are coming to light it’s clear the gunman was very disturbed, and his religious beliefs were a factor in the rampage. And there were many heroes — not unexpected among our armed forces — that day, particularly Sgt. Kimberly Denise Munley, a member of the SWAT team for Fort Hood’s civilian police department, who in a tactical move charged the still firing Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, taking rounds herself while ending his shooting spree.

Update 11/12/09 — Another law enforcement hero from that day — Senior Sgt. Mark Todd. Todd actually fired the shots that subdued Hasan.
