A U.S. Army general traveled from North Carolina on Wednesday to pin the Purple Heart on the chest of a young Post Falls man still struggling with the effects of the deadliest mass shooting this nation has seen on a military base. “It’s a long time coming. It’s a step in the right direction,” said George Stratton Jr., father of George Stratton III, who was one of the more than 30 people wounded when former Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood in Texas on Nov. 5, 2009.

MATT MITCHELL, 29 A friend once gave Mitchell the complete works of Bob Dylan and he listened to the iconic singer/songwriter exclusively for about a year. Mitchell is the band’s primary singer and songwriter. “Most of what I want to say is about to be recorded,” Mitchell said. “We just believe in the music and I think that’s going to translate.” He grew up playing classical, crediting an influential teacher for inspiring him and his mother for encouraging him. He began writing his own music at an early age. He started with piano, then added organ, guitar and harmonica (which he says doesn’t count because it’s always in the right key). He toured for five years with the jam-grass band Ten Mile Tide, leaving to marry his wife, Missy. By day, he works at 14Four, working with advertising agencies on interactive campaigns. He’s also a graphic designer whose T-shirts are regularly sold at Boo Radley’s.
