Fort Hood to observe Veterans Day in shadow of rampage

KILLEEN, Texas (AP) - It promises to be an especially somber Veterans Day at Fort Hood, Texas, the scene of last week's shooting rampage that claimed 13 lives.

Lt. Gen. Bob Cone, Fort Hood's commanding general, is calling on the post to dedicate itself to their memories.

As for the man accused of being the shooter, Maj. Nidal Hasan, Army Spec. Brian Hill says he has one question for him: "Why would you raise your right hand and swear to protect this country from foreign and domestic terrorism, and then do what you did?"

During a visit to the base yesterday, President Barack Obama addressed a memorial service and met privately with the wounded and with the loved ones of those killed.
