Army officials at the Fort Hood military base are saluting the actions of a civilian policewoman who helped stop a shooting rampage when she fired four shots at the suspect.

Officer Kimberly Munley, who remains hospitalized with the other victims, confronted the suspected shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who drew two handguns and began firing in a building where soldiers were preparing to deploy overseas, VOA News reports.

Munley, who responded within three minutes of the shooting, rushed into the building and confronted Hasan as he turned a corner. She had been directing traffic, prior to the incident, the Daily News reports.

On Friday, Munley's Twitter page was actively referenced on the social media site. In her bio, she says, "I live a good life … a hard one, but I go to sleep peacefully [at] night knowing that I may have made a difference in someone's life."

It was with particular glee I read that a woman had brought this sub human to his current position, as in his world, Kimberly Munley is a nothing, a woman to be covered with a Burka and not glory, hidden from sight from all men so as not to give 'offense'. Would that I could write the same of the sitting administration in the USA, but that would be impossible after reading Gen. George Casey, the Army's chief of staff comment, "What happened at Fort Hood was a tragedy, but I believe it would be an even greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty here." Really? A loss of diversity trumps thirteen dead and thirty one wounded and maimed marvellous American soldiers? In what universe, the back end of his PC brain? Considering the level of intellectual bankruptcy now in full swing in Europe, America is creeping toward this lunacy at a pace I would have sneered at 8 years ago, but not now. Your country suffered the slaughter of 3000 of her citizens from the likes of this killer, and today, your government is afraid to call this guy what he is: A Jihadist, a follower of a corrupt and revolting religion that has little connection to the 21st centaury, a hater of women, disrespected the country he was born in, and finally, makes a sadistic mockery of a country who has helped many immigrants get a new start in life, including his own parents. Jihad-ism does indeed appear to thump country. To the lady who brought this shameful episode to a conclusion, I bid you long life, and a tip of the hat to you.

God bless you for your quick and decisive actions. With 26+ years in the military (L. E. the last 18) and Civilian L. E. O. for quite a few, my prayer is that you recover and you get many more of those night that you can sleep knowing that you've made a difference in others lives!!!!

God bless
