Sen. Cruz: ‘Texas Will Never Forget the Soldiers Lost at Fort Hood’

November 5, 2019



WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued a statement honoring the memories of the 13 soldiers killed and more than 30 others wounded in a shooting at Fort Hood.

"On this day 10 years ago, a maniacal madman viciously murdered 13 and wounded over 30 unarmed U.S. Army soldiers at Fort Hood - attacking the very people who have devoted their lives to defending our country against evil and making the world a safer place. As we honor the memory of the innocent men and women who lost their lives that day, we must also celebrate the courage and bravery of those who ran directly into the line of fire to bring others to safety. I am grateful for their heroism and unite with Texans across the Lone Star State to remember those lost that horrific day."

Following the mass shooting at Fort Hood, Sen. Cruz secured an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2015 to the ensure those wounded and killed at the Fort Hood Shooting were awarded the Purple Heart in recognition for their heroism.
