11-5-09 Terror Attack: Fort Hood Remembered A Year Later
KWTX via Chandler's Watch ^ | Nov. 5, 2010 | Maggie

Posted on 11/05/2010 12:37:22 PM PDT by La Enchiladita

Fort Hood commemorates the first anniversary of the deadly post shooting rampage Friday by paying tribute to the 13 who died and honoring more than 50 who went beyond the call of duty in the chaos and confusion that followed.

FORT HOOD (November 5, 2010)—Few physical reminders remain of the shooting rampage a year ago at Fort Hood’s Soldier Readiness Center that left 12 soldiers and a civilian dead and dozens of others injured, but separate ceremonies Friday on post will pay tribute to the victims and will honor 54 soldiers and civilians whose actions went beyond the call of duty during and after the worst attack in history on a U.S. military base.

To mark the anniversary of the rampage, more than 100 members of the families of the fallen are expected to attend an invitation-only awards ceremony at 10 a.m. Friday honoring those whose actions went above the call of duty on Nov. 5, 2009.

At 1 p.m. Friday, a ceremony that’s open to the public will pay tribute to the 13 who died in the shooting.

It will be followed by a moment of silence and a post-wide retreat ceremony, after which all troops will be released from the day at 2 p.m.

Fort Hood massacre: One year later (Michelle Malkin)

From Malkin's blog:

Congressman John Carter, who represents the Fort Hood area in the U.S. House of Representatives....says radical Islamic terrorism has still not been acknowledged as the cause of the Fort Hood shootings which left 14 Americans dead, and the Department of Defense must not allow political correctness to continue to skew its policies on force protection.

Not me.

For the last year, this jihadist terrorist sh*tbag has received the best health care money can buy (for free), three heart-healthy meals per day (for free), and made as comfortable as humanely possible. All at the expense of the tax-paying victim's families.

Words fail me.

Oh Goody! Another day to light candles, sing Kumbaya, wear some ribbons on our clothes and ask “why do they hate us?”

I’d much rather celebrate the day by hanging the body of the muzzie perp on the gibbet.

Thank you for this thread.

I heard on the news at 2pm about the anniversary. Looked for a thread here but saw none. Don't know why but I thought the massacre happened in Feb.

I have a photo of the row of boots on my wall. I remember every time I pass by it.

I'm sorry we have a nasty _resident. Quite appropriate that he would leave today.

Prayers of Peace and Justice for the families.

Yes. Instead of wallowing in sadness, I feel anger.
I am outraged the DOD cannot say the words, “jihadi terrorism,” and ACT ACCORDINGLY.
This day is equal to 9/11 in my view.
And oh, guess who just left the country.

How many of you forgot that today is the 1 year anniversary?

I participated in the prayer and moment of silence. On Ft. Hood. At the flagpole in front of the HQ of the unit I support as a contractor. So no, I did not forget. Standing that long, some of it at attention, (or best I could do) with two newly replaced knees was not easy. I knee it would not be, but I went anyway because it was important to me that I do so.

Don't forget it was really 14 killed. The one very few count was a soldier's unborn baby. Her last words, according to testimony at the Art. 32 hearing, were "My Baby, My Baby". Then she lost consciousness due to blood loss.

The perp will rot in Hell, and I'd volunteer in a minute to send him there.

RumInt, acquired at an off post eatery, is that the baby was killed by the same bullet the killed the mother. The baby did not die just due to the death of the mother. RUMINT also says that the bullet severed a main artery of the mother/soldier and that she bled out very quickly.

While he burns in Hell his body should be marinating in liquefied waste from a swine feeding operation.

We really should have flags at half-staff across the nation.

I remember when Teddy K died, the flags at all govt buildings, IN CALIFORNIA, were at half staff for several days.

Our recognition of who we are and what matters is skewed all wrong.

Boy, that's for sure. We're all mixed up in terms of what we 'honor.'

Flags at half staff today would have been poignant and meaningful. Instead, this jihadist act is being completely ignored.

(Except by good people like you!)

How many times must my fellow Americans speak the words our own government refuses to speak or hear? I mourn the days when I could trust our government to listen to the people —and to
honor the Oath taken.when darkness comes hear the voices calling Babylon has fallenn Has fallen Has fallen.

Amen, LUV, you said it well.

We know, that when the death sentence is eventually administered to this fiend, it will not be the end for him.

There are others who must be held accountable, and I have not heard of any charges or heads rolling in that regard. There were officers/superiors who KNEW what this monster was about and how dangerous he could be and they did NOTHING. They are responsible too.

I think of these wonderful, quality people who volunteered to serve our country, who sacrificed so much, were ready to serve and do whatever they were asked. There they were in a place they felt safe, should have been safe, and coldly slaughtered. Many of them were medics and had saved many lives themselves. It is all so unthinkable, incomprehensible, except to realize that violent islamic jihad is in the service of Satan.

Thanks for posting this.

My wife was there for the memorial event this afternoon.

Operation Homefront of Texas is paying for the carnival that was set up for family members and also paid for the hotel rooms for them to be able to attend the event. Their local coordinator was working at one of the other Readiness Centers the day of the attack so has a very close, personal interest.

For folks that don’t know what Operation Homefront is, here’s a link: http://www.operationhomefront.net/texas/

Political Correctness allowed this Islamic terrorist to be in the Army and created the possibility of this Islamic traitor to vent his hatred..

thank you. I'm proud of the petite blonde haired, blue-eyed gal and the black man (o’h forget PC, that's not something I have ever cared about) who took down this disgusting Muzzie!

Is he parlayed (I hope!!) as I remember rightly?!

My heart is hurting for the family and friends who perished that day...Our Lord certainly has a place for them in his kingdom!
