Wife of One of the Victims of Yesterday's Shootings was Commenting at FA

I had set up a quick blogpost yesterday on the Fort Hood shooting, before heading off to work, so readers at Flopping Aces could talk about the days events. It turns out that one of the commenters was the wife of Spc. Jason Dean Hunt,1st Cavalry Unit 2-8 Infantry, stationed at the post. Married for only 2 months, the 22 year old soldier, who served 15 months in Iraq, was one of the 13 murdered on Thursday.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the victims; and most of all with Jenn Hunt, who knew by the end of the day what she could not have ever fathomed happening at the beginning of it: The senseless loss of her husband who survived war-torn Iraq, only to be gunned down by a fellow soldier in the most unlikeliest of places, here at home.

What a horror to live through. She thinks they are over the hump when he gets home and the bottom falls out of her world.

That had to've been one of the saddest things I ever read... I can't imagine what that experience must've been like for her and the other families. I'm glad all the folks over at FA were with her, though. I'm certain y'all helped, a little bit.
