A Survivor of the Terroristic Murder-Spree at Fort Hood


A man had a TV on in his office when the news of the military base shootings came on. The husband of one of his employees was stationed there. He called her into his office and the minute he told her what was going on, she got a text message from her husband saying, “I am okay.”

The cell phone started ringing right after that. It was an ER nurse. She said , “I’m the one who just sent you a text, not your husband. “She thought the message would be comforting, but she immediately knew she had to let the wife know what was going on.


She said, “I am sorry but your husband has been shot 4 times and he is in surgery.”


The wife left Southern Clinic in Dothan and drove all night. She made it to Ft. Hood about the time he was waking up and discovered he had visitors.


Here is the photo from that day in the hospital room. He is awake and will recover.








This is not the kind of story that is carried on the state-controlled media.  The Bushes are “real people.”

The Bushes entered and departed the sprawling military facility in secret, having told the base commander they did not want press coverage of their visit, a source told Fox News.

Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura secretly visited Fort Hood last night and spent “considerable time” consoling those who were wounded in Thursday’s shooting spree, Fox News has learned.

The Bushes entered and departed the sprawling military facility in secret, having told the base commander they did not want press coverage of their visit, a source told Fox News.

The couple was described as “deeply concerned” about military families on Fort Hood after Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly opened fire on soldiers and civilians, killing 13 and wounding 38.

The Bushes, who have a 1,600-acre property known as Prairie Chapel Ranch less than 30 miles from Fort Hood in central Texas, spent between one and two hours visiting the wounded and their families.
