One man served his country and family, and a gunman ended his life for no reason
SEATTLE - Robert Michael Hassan led a life of services to his community, his country, and to his family, and on Wednesday a gunman ended that life early when he shot and killed him randomly. At 76 years old, Robert Michael Hassan had accomplished more than most ever will. His family says he was a medical doctor. He was also colonel, serving as a Navy flight surgeon, an Air Force “Full Bird” colonel flight surgeon, and serving five years in the Air Force Reserves, his family says.
