KILLEEN, TX (Attorney General) – Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott Wednesday traveled to Fort Hood, where he attended the memorial service for the victims of last week’s fatal shooting. Last Wednesday’s attack claimed the lives of three military veterans and wounded 16 others.

“Our hearts break for the wounded military men and women and the families of those who died,” Attorney General Abbott said. “Members of the Office of the Attorney General’s Crime Victim Services Division have traveled to Fort Hood to work with victims of last week’s attack. We will continue working with military leaders and the Fort Hood community to make sure they are supported through this long process. Though many difficult days lay ahead, Fort Hood will recover from this devastating tragedy – and emerge stronger than ever.”

The Crime Victims' Compensation Program reimburses out-of-pocket expenses to victims of violent crime and their families.

The memorial service reflected a tribute of tradition and prayer that honored the military police and first responders who courageously rushed toward the danger when the deadly shooting occurred.
