Sgt. Kimberly Munley, a true American hero and Carolina Beach native, will be returning to Pleasure Island this weekend to visit her father, Dennis Barbour, owner of Island Tackle & Hardware. Sgt. Munley is credited with ending the violent shooting rampage of Army Major Nidal Hassan at Fort Hood this past November. She was injured during the encounter, but is well on her way to recovery.
Sgt. Munley was recently a distinguished guest of honor during the President's State of the Union Address, and has been announced as Parade Marshall for the 2010 Azalea Fest in Wilmington. If you see her around Carolina Beach this weekend be sure to say hello, and express appreciation for her service and sacrifice for our country.
