Van de Putte Pays Respects at Fort Hood Memorial Service
(Fort Hood) — State Senator Leticia Van de Putte (District 26, Bexar County, and Chair of the Veteran Affairs and Military Installations Committee) today is attending the memorial service for those slain in last week's shooting at Fort Hood. She issued the following statement:
"My heart goes out to the brave military families grieving over this horrible incident. These families already live with the fear of losing loved ones when a service member is deployed — it's just all the more cruel to suffer tragedy when the service member is back home. As Chair of the Veteran Affairs and Military Installations Committee, it is my privilege to serve families like these on a daily basis, and I salute them for how much they give to our nation."
