One Year Later

One year ago today, 12 Soldiers, 1 veteran, and 1 unborn baby were killed in a tragic event here at Fort Hood. I will never forget how scary it was hearing that someone shot our soldiers here where we're supposed to feel safe. I so naively thought that soldiers don't hurt other soldiers. I thought they all had each others back. I was wrong, very wrong. Wound are still not healing for some. They're waiting for justice to come for Hasan. They've waited patiently and it's time they give him what he deserves.

Just take a moment and remember these people who deserve to be recognized.

Michael Grant Cahill, 65, of Cameron, Texas.

Maj. Libardo Eduardo Caraveo, 52, of Woodbridge, Virginia.

Staff Sgt. Justin M. DeCrow, 32, of Evans, Georgia.

Capt. John Gaffaney, 56, of San Diego, California.

Spc. Frederick Greene, 29, of Mountain City, Tennessee.

Spc. Jason Dean Hunt, 22, of Tipton, Oklahoma.

Sgt. Amy Krueger, 29, of Kiel, Wisconsin.

Pfc. Aaron Thomas Nemelka, 19, of West Jordan, Utah.

Spc. Michael Pearson , 21, of Bolingbrook, Illinois.

Capt. Russell Seager, 51, of Racine, Wisconsin.

Spc. Kham Xiong, 23, of St. Paul, Minnesota.

My heart is with the families who lost loved ones that day.
