Fort Hood

I never met the shooter, don't know him, don't want to know him, and I'm tired of seeing his name and picture plastered all over the damn place. As far as I'm concerned, he doesn't deserve a name, so he can just be "the shooter" from now on. Let's remember these names instead.

(The list of wounded is obviously not complete, specific injuries and ranks may be a bit mixed up, as some were listed differently from one article to the next. One might think the reporters could have the facts straight by now. If anyone has information on the other wounded, please comment, and I'll update the list.)

Wounded:

  • Spc Keara Bono: Wounded in head and back, already back to work and still hoping to deploy on schedule.

  • PFC Amber Bahr: Pass-through wound to back, dragged another wounded soldier out of the area and provided first aid.

You are right. The victims and their courage should be glorified, not the terrorist. Thanks for posting the list.
