One Year Anniversary Of The Shooting Rampage At Ft. Hood

One year ago a gunman opened fire at Fort Hood Army Post, killing 13 people and injuring dozens.

Friday, friends and family members are paying tribute to those victims.

A stone memorial engraved with the names of all those who were killed will be unveiled after a ceremony honoring the soldiers and civilians.

As loved ones continue the healing process, they recognize those who went above and beyond the call of duty that day.

"He always did what was right first. Whether it meant his job, whether it meant somebody being mad at him, whether it meant his life," said Keely Vanacker, one of the victim's daughter.

"Today we pause to honor the 13 killed, the many wounded and countless others affected by the senseless, violent attack at fort hood one year ago. My thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones who are still struggling to cope with this tragedy and loss, as well as the greater fort hood community as they honor those lost and the heroes who put themselves in harm's way on that fateful day," Senator John Cornyn said.
