    terrible for those soldiers and families involved. it's stressful enough getting ready to leave for a deployment with out a tragedy like this. We just found out about it here in Kosovo. Thoughts and prayers from the Balkans.

    They are saying Multiple gunmen wearing military uniforms. 1 in custody still looking for others. Not sure if they were US military or what.

    9 dead up to 30 wounded.

    Unbeleivable

    I suspect there was not much "thinking" involved.

    The death toll is going up... what a tragedy.





    Update on Ft. Hood shooting; 12 dead, more than 30 wounded

    5:00 pm November 5, 2009, by Jay
    According to Lt. Gen. Bob Cone, commanding officer of III Corps at Ft. Hood, Texas: 12 dead, 31 wounded.
    The shooter was a U.S. soldier, who was killed.
    Two other soldiers who may have been involved have been arrested. Offiicials believe the situation is now under control.
    What a nightmare. I wouldn’t be surprised if in the end this turns out to be a solo act, a soldier who lost it.

    The shooter was a Major in the army, and was due to deploy, he was also a converted muslim....
    this, according to Fox News

    I hope that Txduckdog is okay! He recently posted that he was getting ready to deploy...Txduckdog, let us know if you are okay!
