Retired Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford says he will never forget locking eyes with the gunman who entered a Fort Hood building Nov. 5, 2009, then unleashed a burst of gunfire into a crowd of soldiers preparing for deployment.
"It's not about the amount. It's about principle," said retired Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford, who was shot seven times by Hasan and testified at his trial. "During this time the man was incarcerated, he was still drawing full military pay, full military benefits. That money was spent on him, and we were denied — still — certain benefits."
