Prayers for Fort Hood

Sometimes you find yourself in a situation where you can't "post as normal". My Army brother-in-law (who did two tours in Iraq), little sis, niece and nephew just moved from Fort Hood to north Texas a few months ago. I am horrified about what happened in Fort Hood today, and I just wanted to send my prayers to the brave soldiers, civilians, and their families there. Rita

  1. Yes, lots of prayers for those families.

    If you (or anyone else) is interested I posted on my blog a newsletter I was emailed from Soldier's Angels about how we can help the families and children of the fallen. It has what and where to send things. They need all the love and support we can give this holiday season.

  3. I too pray for those affected by the recent events at Ft.Hood. I also have a BIL who is stationed there but luckily he is ok. However he has friends who were not as lucky. Being a military wife myself I know how hard things like this can be.

  5. I have a friend from highschool whose husband is stationed at Fort Hood. She had just been there for a class right before the shootings and her husband was still on base when it happened. I actually heard it all from her before even seeing it on the news! Thankfully her husband got out ok but she is still very shaken!
