I also served 20 years in the Navy and served in Viet-Nam, My Dad got his Purple Heart In World War II And My son got His Purple Heart in Iraq.It was an Act Of Terrorism,and I believe they have earned their Purple Heart and the benefits to cover their injuries.Rather it was on US soil or a combat Zone,it was a act of war toward the US Army Victims.

Oops ....wrong discussion...sorry. Well , I'll put in my 2 cents 'bout the victims. I AM a Vietnam Era Vet. I believe that the second Nissan (the shooter...and I'll not give him the respect of the position of Major)yelled out "Allah Alc Abbah" or whatever they yell out , this became a terrorist act. Why ??? Because at that point in time , he became the enemy. A terrorist. Since "911" this country has "OFFICIALLY" been at war with terrorism AND TERRORISTS. A terrorist is not defined by the...

Why ??? Because at that point in time , he became the enemy. A terrorist. Since "911" this country has "OFFICIALLY" been at war with terrorism AND TERRORISTS. A terrorist is not defined by the country he represents but an ideology of belief. Nissan was indoctrinated into that belief system. We're not "AT WAR" with any specific country overseas. But with those who follow and help carry-out these horrible acts of WAR....THIER WAR . Most people don't get it." WE ARE THE ENEMY " if you are a Jihadist. The victims of the Fort Hood Massacre were shot by a terrorist.....An enemy of the United States. The victims should get all military honors and benefits.

I mostly like what you are doing but I don't agree that the victims need a Purple Heart. I served 20 years (Navy). The victims were not in combat so don't make this into what it was not. Was it JUST AS HORRIBLE, yes. But it was not combat. Do they deserve benefits to completely cover their injuries and loss of future salary, yes. But is was not combat. It certainly as an Act of Terrorism and to call it Workplace Violence is ridiculous because if the President (or VP or other...

It certainly as an Act of Terrorism and to call it Workplace Violence is ridiculous because if the President (or VP or other politician) would have been there and died, it would have been terrorism. I really believe you too often try to make something into what it is not and that hurts your general cause, which I like and applaude you for. Thanks for listening.

The blame for this lack of support lies directly on the arrogant shoulders of Barrack Hussein Obama.

obama may choose to play semantics, however lets call it as it is, an "Act of Terrorism" on U.S. soil. Therefore it follows that the proper military reaction should be applied. My heart and prayers go out to all and may reason prevail. Tks Brother Paul

No, no get real. Denied the truth just makes us look weak, stupid and really dumb to the whole world. Plus what this does to our dead and injured familys. Do or say what they want. It is what it is.

I don't think most people are ready to hear but we are in a combat zone. These military personnel deserve to have the support and love of our nation. Give them all the Purple Heart and the care that goes with it.

I need to say =my mom was a army nurse and received the purple heart for her work but it was from a injury on job , my dad being a life navy air force man would not let us see it, as he said it was not in combat or wounded in action, mom kept it hid from us and him , she also said the men in battle have to earn this, she said = had a area i was in that was considered war zone and got a bad cut , not inflicted by the enemy, so this is not a true award to me ! these people that where shot are...
