FORT HOOD, Texas (WKOW) -- Veterans Day will be especially somber at Fort Hood, Texas this year, where less than a week ago, a shooting rampage claimed the lives of 12 soldiers and one civilian.

Fort Hood's commanding general is calling on the post to dedicate itself to the memories of those victims on this day.

During a visit to the base Tuesday, President Barack Obama addressed a memorial service and met privately with the families of those hurt and killed in the attack.
