Support continues to pour in for Kim Munley

A month after the shootings at Fort Hood, support for Sargent Kimberly Munley continues to pour in from the community. One woman has crafted a memorial quilt to be sent to Munley in time for the holidays.

Munley was shot three times, and is now resting at her home in Texas, awaiting knee replacement surgery. Carol Smith is the North Carolina coordinator for the Home of the Brave quilt project. Her group sends quilts to the family of each military casualty in the state. After the Fort Hood shootings, the group decided Munley deserved one for her heroic efforts to stop the shooter.

“I hope they can have a happy Christmas and I hope that she gets along well with her surgery. And hopefully I’ll get to meet her one day” said Carol Smith

Kim’s father, Dennis Barbour, said he continues to be overwhelmed by the support shown to his daughter from the community. With surgery on the horizon, Kim will not be able to travel back to Carolina Beach for the holidays. Her dad says the family will travel to Texas to take care of her after her surgery.
