Van de Putte Statement on Ft. Hood Murders
"My heart breaks for the soldiers and families who lost their lives and loved ones today at Ft. Hood. To return from the horrors of war, only to find that the nightmare is not over is heart-wrenching.
"My thoughts and prayers are with those families who lost their loved ones and the soldiers who were injured. As Veterans' Day approaches we should all be especially mindful of the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces."
Senator Van de Putte is the Chair of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations.
