I somehow feel I should talk about the shootings at Ft Hood; but honestly, I wouldn’t know what to say. I didn’t hear about it until I was driving home. From the sounds of what I heard, at first they suspected it might be a terrorist act. But I’m not surprised it was a soldier (with possible accomplices). Still, that doesn’t lessen the pain the victims, family, friends and coworkers are feeling.
I work with a lot of Army soldiers and Army vets. And all our leadership is Army, even though it’s a “joint” organization. I would venture to say at least 75% of them have been stationed at Ft Hood at one time or another. I imagine the the flags will be at half-staff tomorrow.
