Fort Hood

November 6, 2009

Our thoughts are with the families at Fort Hood, with the deployed soldiers who have family there, and the entire military community. Friday Feature will not appear today, we are trying to find groups that are assisting the families at Hood. If you know of any groups, please comment here so we can get the word out.

We all have friends who were either previously at Hood, are PCSing there in the future, or who have friends there still. There isn ‘t much any of us can do right now other than be there for those friends, let them talk or cry or lean. So take a minute, call that friend, let them know you are there – and say a prayer for those who need it. Let’s make sure that all the disinformation out there isn’t spread by us, gently tell the civilian co workers and friends the truth about military life and remember NOT to spread rumours about any of this – there’s plenty of that on TV.

    This group: http://www.taps.org/ has an office at Fort Hood and provides grief and bereavement counseling for soldiers and families. I know they are looking for assistance and are going into overdrive to help the victims/families at Fort Hood who need help.

    Soldiers Angels: http://www.soldiersangels.org is also organizing a drive to help families at Fort Hood.

    A friend of mine served at Fort Hood, and in the aftermath of the violence is looking into reenlisting into the Army. One of the biggest rumors I heard was the shooting’s connection to Guy Fawkes Day. I wrote about it on my blog, itsaveteransworld.wordpress.com.
