Staff Sergeant KirklinEdit

Staff Sergeant Kirklin was the first soldier Daniel Wright intentionally killed.


Kirklin appeared in Chapter 22, when he and two soldiers saw Danny, Cal, and Sweeney tackled two other soldiers guarding JoBell and Becca. In order to trick Danny into surrendering, he orders two of his soldiers to drop their weapons if JoBell and Sweeney drop theirs. When they all drop their weapons, Kirklin orders Wright to his weapon as well. When Danny refuses, Kirklin places him and his friends under arrest. Kirklin tightens his rifle against his shoulder, threatening Danny that he'll put him down. Danny then shoots Kirklin twice, killing him instantly with the first bullet tearing through his chest and the second ripped out his hand. Kirklin leaves behind a wife and two children.
