Josh dislocated his soldier as he was running and ducking for cover. He was not shot.
"I could hear him breathing heavy. He said, 'Oh my God. My arm, my arm.' He kept quiet for the most part and I didn't speak, because I didn't know if the person - if he was hiding and the person would hear him if he could hear me talk on the phone and it was just complete chaos," said Melissa.
Melissa says Josh was just about to leave Fort Hood. He was at the Soldier Readiness Center on Thursday because he was getting his clearing packet to move to Fort Knox, Ky. He had returned from Afghanistan on June 26 of this year.
"He was getting ready to leave there and move closer to me and the kids," said Melissa. "He was so happy this morning to finally be getting closer to home. I can't believe one of his own almost killed him after surviving deployment. The poor families of the fallen."
