    Former Rainbow girl Kimberly Munley is being hailed as a hero for
    bringing down the Fort Hood shooter while taking three bullets
    herself, and her former partner isn't a bit surprised. Shaun
    Appler, who worked with her years ago in North Carolina, says that
    he began calling her "Mighty Mouse" after she leaped through the
    air to free him from an assailant choking him and trying to grab
    his gun.

    "She saved my life that night," Appler says. "When I found out the
    female officer at Fort Hood was Kim, I wasn't surprised. Kim not
    only has the training, I know she was mentally prepared to know
    what to do when you get into that situation." He spoke to her by
    phone yesterday. "She is in good spirits, although she is
    obviously saddled with the loss of life that occurred there."

    All of us were horrified by the terrorist attack at Ft. Hood last
    week. We were equally thankful for the heroic actions taken by
    the civilian policewoman who ended the attack by shooting the
    terrorist and bringing him down.

    Officer Kimberly Barbour Munley was a member of North Carolina
    Wilmington Assembly 29, now Goldenrod Assembly 29, where she
    served as Worthy Advisor, and also as the North Carolina Rainbow
    Grand Musician. She was also a member of the Grand Cross of Color.
    I know that each of you join me in praying for the family of Mrs.

    Munley as she recovers from her injuries, and for all of the
    families of Ft. Hood.

    Kay Letterman, Supreme Inspector in North Carolina, said, "We are
    very proud of the courage that this young lady displayed to save
    so many lives.
