Earlier this week, the Killeen Daily Herald did an analysis on the hiring of Jeff Monken as Army's new football coach.

I had tried to reach 1st Lieutenant Davyd Brooks, of Killeen, on his response. I had heard he was a big football fan. However he was out of the country and without phone service.

He was kind enough to send us a text today as soon as he got back home:

"All I can do is trust in the decision makers at the academy. I believe they want to do the right thing for the program. Haven't read much about the new coach yet to say much about him."

Thank you, Lieutenant, for everything you do for our country in keeping us all safe.
