Army wife on husband who was shot at Ft. Hood soon going to Afghanistan: "At least he's safe there and he can fire back, right?"I have noted before how Army bases are gun free zones. From an interview on that aired on CNN on November 9, 2009:
MANDY FOSTER, WIFE OF PVT. JOSEPH FOSTER: I was actually at home with our two children and, no, I did not know where he was at the time. . . .
ROBERTS: And you're still scheduled for deployment in January?
J. FOSTER: Yes.
ROBERTS: And you're still scheduled for deployment in January, there, Joe. Has this affected at all your thoughts about going to Afghanistan?
J. FOSTER: I'm still a soldier day in and day out. I'll do my job.
ROBERTS: And, Mandy, how are you feeling about that?
M. FOSTER: At least he's safe there and he can fire back, right?
ROBERTS: At least he'll be able to do that if somebody comes after him. . . .
