WNY native out of Texas hospital after shooting

Temple, Texas -- A Western New York native injured in a deadly mass shooting at a Texas military base two weeks ago has been sent home from the hospital.

Army Major Patrick Miller was shot in the stomach April 2 when a gunman opened fire at Fort Hood. Three soldiers died, and Miller was among 16 injured.

Miller, a native of Allegany, Cattaraugus County, and a St. Bonaventure and Syracuse University graduate, helped shield other victims from the shooter and called 911. Hes expected to make a full recovery.

Miller said hes overwhelmed and humbled by the support he has received.

You go in the Army and move away to different places, and over time you -- at least me, anyway -- become more proud every day, proud of where you came from, he said. As far as the word hero -- and I've felt this way since my deployment overseas -- in my opinion, the heroes are the ones that never come home and make the ultimate sacrifice.
