RANDOM LAKE - A Wisconsin soldier wounded in the Fort Hood shooting is preparing to face the man who shot her.

Amber Bahr-Gadlin was one of six people from Wisconsin who were hurt or killed during the 2009 shooting.  Bahr-Gadlin has been ordered to testify in the military trial. 

Major Nidal Hasan has been charged with murdering thirteen and wounding another thirty when he opened fire.

He will defend himself, which means Hasan will have the opportunity to cross-examine witnesses, including Bahr-Gadlin.

Lisa Pfund is the Wisconsin soldier's mother. The Random Lake woman said she is relieved her daughter will have the chance to have this trial behind her. "I'm glad it's moving forward now, so she can start healing," she said.

Hasan's trial will begin Tuesday. He could face the death penalty if he is found guilty by the jury made up of military members.
