Military hails 2 heroes from Ft. Hood rampage
MSNBC.com ^ | November 6, 2009 | msnbc.com

Posted on 11/06/2009 8:50:48 AM PST by hennie pennie

...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."

[ ...snip...]

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....

Now there is a photo of Kimberly Munly, from her facebook homepage. Perhaps MSNBC changes photos which accompany stories on their mobile editions?

Her Twitter bio read: 'I live a good life. ... a hard one, but I go to sleep peacefully @ night knowing that I may have made a difference in someone's life."

Never more so than yesterday. We're bursting with pride to be able to count you among our countrymen (countrywomen?)

WOW, Jeff -- good catch!

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.

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.

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.

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.

My daughter is a huge Battlestar Galactica fan and she said, "If only Starbuck had been there." Apparently she was and kicked ass.

Photobucket

I served with several women in the Army and while there were a couple that were a bit too girly for the service, there were some that were just as hardcore, just as fearless and just as capable as any male soldiers. There were two that I am sure would have been deadly, stone cold killers who would have yanked hearts from chests and eaten them. Starbuck would have been proud of those two.

I wonder what she thinks, she can't possibly be unaware of all the blunders her hubby makes - like yesterday, the shennanigans of him doing "Shout Outs" to his buddies in the crowd ... perhaps she finds a few of his social gaffees to be a bit "stinky."

For killing 13 Americans? NOOOOOOO.

But the ones that called him ‘camel jockey’ will surely be investigated for hate speech.

I keep waiting to hear that someone like Oprah or Dr. Phil has scheduled a whole bunch of experts in bullying to discuss the Fort Hood Massacre -- yeah, so far I have not yet heard the word 'bully' or the word, 'bullying.'

I'm sure the MSM won't be long in advancing it, though.

The poor guy, that doc was bullied and we all know what VICTIMS of bullying do, right?

Hi again, cups.

Freeper Logic n'Reason explained it this way to me:

Logic n' Reason to hennie pennie:

But... but surely this military court will NOT be televised live on Court TV, right?

>>>> "You are absolutely correct.

BTW: you can, if you want to read a great deal, google "UCMJ" and "military court trial procedures" and find out a bunch." <<<<

AND:

>>>> "The UCMJ has the death penalty for capital crimes. It always has.

And the UCMJ does not have to get the entire civilian judicial system including ACORN and the ACLU and the liberal Supreme Court and all the rest...involved.

It's trial, judgement, execution. " <<<<<

ROFLOL, forgive me for laughing, or join me.
Nidal Malik Hasan, a muslim, was shot down by two little girls?
God does have a sense of humor.

I pray for speedy recovery, mental and physical, to these wonderful heroic Young Ladies. God bless them!

I am unsure of the age of the policewoman who shot Dr. Hasan four times, but she looks to be in her 20s.

The other woman mentioned in this article is aged 19 and she is a nutritionist in the army. She put a tourniquet on one soldier, and carried him to safety, and then she returned and got other soldiers to safety. It was only later, that Amber Bahr suddenly realized that she, too, had been shot and was profusely bleeding.

I still don't know her age, but policewoman Sgt. Munley is all of 5 foot 4 inches tall.

Woman who stopped Fort Hood rampage is Hoggard grad, former Wrightsville Beach N.C. officer

I am so glad you gave these heroes a thread of their own.

If I had not first heard the Texas Police say she was ok, I would have thought the lady cop was dead as reported.

But then I should not be surprised, for the communist manifesto, does not support heroes.

And listening to liberals define a hero, is amazing, for to them there is no such thing as a real hero, the most common statement they will make is “not a hero, just did the job they are paid to do!!”

And I invent new cuss words every time I hear them.

Though the lady who shot the traitor did a brave and workmanlike job and we are all proud of her, I can’t help thinking that MPs aren’t better suited to policing military bases.

Is this a cost thing? I don’t see how it could be cheaper to use civilians than to draft some guys out of the ranks and put armbands on them.
