Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford on Nadal Hasan's sentencing: "I'm happy that he is receiving the death sentence"

Tonight, Piers Morgan welcomed Staff Sergeant Alonzo Lunsford for his first interview since testifying against Major Nidal Hasan. Earlier today, the jury recommended the death penalty for Hasan, for the 2009 Fort Hood Shooting which left 13 people dead and 32 others wounded.

Sergeant Lunsford was shot seven times by sole shooter Hasan, who was serving as a military psychiatrist at Fort Hood.

"I'm happy that he [Hasan] is receiving the death sentence," Lunsford began. "I definitely do not want him to sit and wait and die of old age. I think that now is the time that we really need to go ahead and finish the process and actually put him to death ... We have to prove as a nation and as a government that we will not allow terrorists to flourish within our uniform services, that's why he deserves to be put to death."

At the time, Lunsford was in charge as a combat medic and said it was "shocking" when he realized the man he thought he knew so well had turned rogue enemy:

"It was shocking, and actually, one of the safest places you can be in our country is a military base, so for him to perform the actions he did that day, the first thing that came into all of our minds was how we were going to eliminate the threat."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford as he describes how he is no longer the same person he was before November 5, 2009, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.
