Staff Sgt. Patrick Zeigler and family exemplify resilience

Staff Sgt. Patrick Zeigler, his wife, Jessica, and their son, Liam, enjoy a moment outside Fort Hood's Survivor Outreach Services building while waiting for the verdict in the court-martial of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who was accused of carrying out the Nov. 5, 2009 shooting rampage that killed 13 and wounded 32, Aug. 26, 2009. Zeigler was getting cleared to attend officer candidate school when he was shot four times in the incident, including once in the head. Hasan was found guilty less than an hour after this photo was taken and, two days later, he was sentenced to death.
