Remembering the soldiers and victims of Ft. Hood shooting.

This Thanksgiving let's remember the soldiers and civilians injured in the Ft. Hood shootings.  My Texas Hill Country article will be a bit more solemn in as one of my classmates (Vita Haake) brother-in-law, Spc. Logan Burnette, was victim of the shooting and is now in rehab in San Antonio, Texas. He was a part-time reservist who quit his job to deploy prior to the Ft. Hood shootings....now his family must move from Missouri to San Antonio as he forgoes a lengthy recovery.   A fund has been set up to help he and his family during this time of need. Please keep this family in your prayers during this holiday season and if you would like to help out, the contact information is listed below.

Here is his story:
This is the story as I received it from my Texas State University professor, Dr. Libby Allison:
Vita Haake's, brother-in-law, Spc. Logan Burnette, was gunned down in the Ft. Hood shooting. He was shot three times. Fortunately, he is recovering well, but he has several months of rehabilitation ahead. His family is in dire need of financial help. They are broke. Logan and his wife and children are from Kansas, and he was a part-time reservist, who quit his job to deploy; his wife has now quit her job, where they were living in Joplin, Missouri to move to San Antonio because he is in rehabilitation
there. There have been a lot of travel expenses, now moving expenses, and of
course living expenses.  Because he can tell it better than anyone, here's his story on CNN:

And here is a spot on Anderson Cooper 360:
