Ft. Hood Shootings Focus the Nation’s AttentionPosted: November 5, 2009
All: At about 1430 CST today, I heard from my oldest daughter who works for a Dallas television station about the tragedy unfolding at Ft. Hood. It’s now about five hours later, and like so many others, I’ve been focused on the reports flowing in from news outlets all over the country.
I simply wanted to mark this moment by posting condolences to all those affected by this latest horror, which hits so close to home and heart. All of us who wear or who have worn the uniform, and the family members, are touched in some way and saddened. My prayers and thoughts are that we all hang together with strength, and try to help those affected — and each other — forward in any way we’re able.
Respectfully, Bill Meili, COL (Ret.), JA, USAR
