A bittersweet deployment for one Wisconsin soldier. It’s been nearly a month since the Fort Hood shootings which claimed five lives from a Madison based unit. On Friday, the 467th Medical Detachment left for Afghanistan. Army Sergeant Grant Moxon of Lodi, was supposed to be with them, but was injured in the November 5th rampage. “I’m sure it’s going to take quite awhile for everybody to recover fully from this,” said Moxson, confident in the abilities of his comrades in the 467th. “They got right back into the swing of things. They didn’t miss a beat.” Moxon came face to face with suspect Nidal Hassan, and was shot in the leg. The bullet is still there, and will be, indefinitely. He’s now recovering at home.
