Fort Hood Shootings

Our deepest sympathies to those affected by the shootings at Fort Hood today.

UPDATED 10:00 AM EST, FRIDAY NOV. 6

If you are looking for loved ones on Fort Hood you can visit the Red Cross Safe and Well List. In order to complete a search you will need to know the phone number or address of your loved one.

If you are on the post, we encourage you to register on Safe and Well so others know you are safe. If you have spoken to loved ones on Fort Hood, you can register them on Safe and Well by visiting www.redcross.org. Safe and Well does not provide a specific location of those who have registered and all personal information is kept confidential.

We do have personnel who work on the post at Fort Hood. We have been in contact with those staff members and they are safe. The Army has not requested any Red Cross help at this point, but we do stand ready if needed.

The Red Cross has supplied nearly 150 units of blood and blood products to Darnall Army Medical Center and Scott and White Hospital.

Although not all blood donations over the next several days will be needed for the victims of this tragedy, your blood can be used to help treat others with illnesses and injuries.  If you are eligible to give blood or have questions about donating, please call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (800-448-3543) to make an appointment or visit us online at givelife.org. It is important to make an appointment before you show up.

Families seeking more information can call the Army hotlines at (254) 724-4376 (local) or (866) 836-2751.

  102. 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

  103. 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

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

    JESUS NAME AMEN

  108. 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?

  115. 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.
