Munley expected to be released from hospital Tuesday

Reported by Scott Saxton email

KILLEEN, TX (WECT) - Sgt. Kim Munley, the Carolina Beach native who is credited for helping to stop the killings that took place at Ft. Hood last November, will be released from a Houston hospital tomorrow.

Munley underwent knee replacement surgery last week as part of her rehabilitation process.  Munley was shot several times during a gunfight with Major Nidal Hasan.  Hasan killed thirteen people in a shooting spree at Ft. Hood and injured countless others.

Munley, the daughter of former Carolina Beach mayor Dennis Barbour, was one of the civilian officers who stopped Hasan from shooting more people.

"Off all the IVs and on pills form meds. Pain is much less and going home tomorrow!!! Yay! Thanks for everything!!!," wrote Munley on her Twitter account (@hope2forget30) today.
