U.S. CONGRESSMAN AL GREEN EXPRESSES HIS CONDOLENCES FOR THE TRAGIC INCIDENT AT THE FORT HOOD ARMY BASE
Washington (DC) – I am deeply saddened about the tragic incident that occurred today at the Army base in Fort Hood (Texas) that has taken the lives of 11 brave American soldiers and wounded 31 more.
My condolences and support go to the families of the fallen and the wounded. Our service members and their families make enormous sacrifices for the sake of freedom in this country and we owe them a special debt of gratitude. During this difficult time my thoughts and prayers go out to each of them. Fort Hood represents a crucial post for the U.S. Military and the fact that this tragedy has taken place in my home state of Texas just makes my lament even stronger.
I am hopeful the thorough investigation of the incident that the federal government has already announced will clarify what has happened and will bring justice.
