Fort Hood Heroes To Be State Of The Union Guests

Texas – Two police officers credited with stopping last year's shooting rampage at Fort Hood will be guests of the first lady during Wednesday's State of the Union speech.

Sgts. Kimberly Munley and Mark Todd will watch President Barack Obama's address with Michelle Obama in a gallery overlooking the House floor. On Nov. 5, the officers opened fire on Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who is accused of killing 13 people in the worst mass murder on a U.S. military base. Munley was wounded in the incident.

According to witnesses, Hasan walked into a processing center at Fort Hood in Texas and opened fire with a pair of handguns. Hasan has been charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
