Being an 'army brat', and at one time living just outside of Killeen Texas while my father was stationed at Fort Hood Texas, and having a son in the military, my heart just aches for our service men and women and the families of those involved in this horrific attack.
Right now news is very limited, but what has been confirmed is 12 are dead, 11 of them victims of the attackers and the other is one of the attackers. 31 confirmed wounded at this time. 2 more are in custody at this time.
We have no knowledge of what exactly prompted this attack, but the reason right now is really 'beside the point'. What is the point?
Our service men and women have been killed and injured, here at home, by one of their own. Deliberately.
I would like to pay my respect to those who have fallen.
To those who have survived, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your families as you heal and comes to terms with what has happened to you, while you grieve for those who have been lost.
