Sad Day

Ft. Hood, largest military base on the planet, was attacked by one of its own. Ft Hood, shocked & in mourning & looking for answers to a horrible massacre at the hands of a mass murderer.

For my non-Texans, Ft Hood is the big ol red dot between San Antonio & Dallas. I find it only a little odd that Austin isn't found on that map. Killeen is also not on the map & it sits right outside Ft. Hood.

Yesterday was a terrible day, but I hope today begins the upward climb to recovery for those injured, healing for those mourning, & punishment for those guilty of such deprived acts of cold-blooded murder on unarmed men & women preparing to deploy in the service of their nation.

These will be challenging times ahead for III Corps & all her units (including) First Army Division West, 1st Cavalry Division, 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, 41st Fires Brigade, 13th Sustainment Command, 504th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade, & the 89th Military Police Brigade.

Soldiers Angels have set up a collection drive for those wounded & the children of those present.
RIGHT NOW: Collecting encouraging notes and NEW stuffed animals for the families and children of the injured or killed. Please send cards/letters and stuffed animals (and anything NEW that may brighten the life of a child) to:
Soldiers' Angels
4408 PanAm Expressway
San Antonio, TX 78218

If you can give your life blood for those men & women who give you theirs, please DONATE! The local hospitals have an urgent need for more blood. Even hospitals as far afield as Ft. Worth have sent blood & must replenish their stocks so if you can, give blood today.

Don't forget to fly her at Half Staff until Sunday, by order of the Governor & common sense & decency.
