From a family member of one of the Fort Hood victims:
"Down in Dothan, Alabama a man had a TV on in his office when the news of the Fort Hood military base shootings came on. The husband of one of his employees was stationed there. He called her into his office and the minute he told her what was going on, she got a text message from her husband saying, "I am okay." The cell phone started ringing right after that. It was an ER nurse. She said, "I'm the one who just sent you a text, not your husband." She thought the message would be comforting, but she immediately knew she had to let the wife know what was going on. She said, "I am sorry but your husband has been shot 4 times and he is in surgery."
The wife left Southern Clinic in Dothan and drove all night.
Miraculously, here is the photo I just received from my brother that was taken today in the hospital room. He is awake and will recover. His wife, who lives in Dothan , made it to Ft. Hood about the time he was waking up. Thought I'd share this great outcome. THIS PICTURE WAS NOT A PHOTO OP; IT WAS TAKEN BY A FRIEND. "
Not surprisingly, the only words this soldier ever heard from Obama was when Obama went on TV to downplay the incident!
