...The top commander at Fort Hood is crediting a civilian police officer for stopping the shooting rampage that killed 13 people at the Texas post. Lt. Gen. Bob Cone also hailed a young Army nutritionist who helped wounded victims.
Both women heroically intervened despite being shot. Cone said Friday that Fort Hood police Sgt. Kimberly Munley and her partner responded within three minutes of reported gunfire Thursday afternoon. Cone said Munley shot the gunman four times despite being shot herself.
Officials said Munley was in stable condition. Cone said, "It was an amazing and an aggressive performance by this police officer."
Cone also hailed Amber Bahr, 19, as an "amazing young lady." The commander told NBC's TODAY show that the nutritionist put a tourniquet on a wounded soldier and carried him out to medical care. And only after she had taken care of others did she realize she had been shot, he said.
On Thursday, her mother, Lisa Pfund, told the Sheboygan Press that she spoke briefly to Bahr after she was taken to a community hospital....

Please, O Bama, do NOT say that these brave heroes acted stupidly.
Now there is a photo of Kimberly Munly, from her facebook homepage. Perhaps MSNBC changes photos which accompany stories on their mobile editions?
Never more so than yesterday. We're bursting with pride to be able to count you among our countrymen (countrywomen?)
I hope that the photo of 19 year old Amber Bahr will become available again, soon. She did NOT act "stupidly."
A Muslim in the Army can post on the internet supporting Suicide Bombers and nothing is done until he kills a dozen while trying to kill more, BUT if a NFL player uses a Gay slur, there are demands for his firing. If lies are told about Rush Limbaugh, he can’t own a small part of a football team. The bleeping 9-11 highkackers could have put their plan on the internet and the MSM would be blaming Bush.
Thank YOU so very much!!
Small town Wisconsin produces some fine Americans, and Amber is one of our best! Random Lake just 45 minutes north of Milwaukee, I have a friend who teaches there.
So..... when does the left cry for charges to be brought up on this officer for shooting the poor oppressed muslim?
Both these women deserve a medal. But Obama will just shrug his shoulders.
When I think about our youth going down the tube, this girl gives me hope that there are still alot of good kids out there.
If I was her parent I would have so much pride I would pop!
Applaud aggression? That’s not quite PC.
Maybe we could have used more aggression when reviewing this that quack shrink.
Where were the MPs? This is a military post with a large contingent of MILITARY POLICE.
Who should have been the first responders? I haven’t heard anyone address this point so far.
Photograph in posting no.7 & further info about 19 year old Amber Bahr in article.
So will there be hate crime charges against Nidal Malik Hasan?
Good ol’ Texas justice will make sure he gets a needle in his arm.
The local police department responded; it is my understanding that none of the soldiers were armed, and that like many American military installations the armed guards are civilian security guards.
“Both these women deserve a medal. But Obama will just shrug his shoulders.”
Fortunately the decision to award medals is in the hands of Army officers; men and women of character who have gone to West Point or similar service academies (e.g. ROTC) and not Obama.
I am glad these two ladies will receive their well-deserved decorations in person and not posthumously. Furthermore, I hope they receive them from somebody like General David Petraeus and not Barack Obama.
