  1. Our prayers go out to Ft. Hood on this sad day. I am looking for a friend of the family Michael Blue who is a officer in the army. God bless the military whereever they are serving.

  2. I am still in shock ieven the next day. I was in Georgetown when all of this took place. I was doing an interview and all excited and the new job. When I got to my car I received the message that I was to not go home and there was a shooter.I was hoping it was a really bad joke cause my son was at school when it was going on and my husband was gone. I spent almost an hr trying to reach anyone who could tell me what was going on. Thankfully my son was picked up before it happend and my husband arrived home just as it was happening. We live right down the street from where this all took place. The only thing between us is a softball field. I really hope nothing else takes place and all the families are safe.I was stuck off post in a near by parking lot from 3pm to almost 8pm last night. I have never been so nervous in my life. I as of this time am still hearing the sirens near my house. I pray for all your families in this sad time

  3. Louisa Northwood is OK. I am praying for those who were injured and killed. I am also very thankful for the fast response of the MP’s and the care that the soldiers quickly gave to the injured. My prayers are with all unites and to First Calvary which a family member is in. God bless those at Fort Hood

  4. My heart goes out to all the family & friends that were affected by this devastating news. You are all in my thoughts & prayers.

  8. My husband wasn’t on post when the shooting happened, but it hit him really hard. He lost friends in Iraq and for it to happen at home has triggered some old memories. I’m not sure who to talk to in order to try and get him some help. Any suggestions?

  14. Brianna, who postest about Bobby on November 6th at 12:29am, if you are referring to Bobby Z. orginially from New York he is safe.

  15. I hope everyone has found their loved ones safe and well. For those who did not, keep strong. All of us here on post will do everything we can for those who were felled or injuried. We stick together. For Jared Heard, segregating everyone is ridiculous. Do not spread lies and fear when you do not know what you are talking about. Look what was done to the Japanese in WWII, look at what Hilter did to the Jews, the path to hell is paved with good intentions. You would be better off going to a unity meeting somewhere near you and taking the time to befriend a muslim, get to know the culture. Have faith, and spend your time more constructively perhaps go donate blood, or calll all the businesses in your area to fly half staff until Wednesday. Thanks.
