More Heartbreak At Fort Hood

Another soldier has been murdered at Fort Hood. This is terrible, just terrible.

RONKONKOMA - Military officials have announced an army sergeant will be charged with murder in the shooting death of a veteran from Ronkonkoma.
Army Sgt. Brett Wessel allegedly shot and killed Ryan Dickinson, 26, during a dispute at Fort Hood in Texas last week.

Dickinson's family says his wake will be held this weekend and his funeral is set for Monday. He will be buried at Calverton National Cemetery.
Dickinson leaves a wife and two children.

My daughter is very upset as she and Dickinson's widow are childhood friends, graduating together from high school. Dickinson's hometown is Ronkonkoma, NY, located in Suffolk County, Long Island. My Dad is also buried at Calverton.
