Rep. Louie Gohmert Travels to Fort Hood for Purple Heart Ceremony

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) will attend the Fort Hood Purple Heart Ceremony Friday in Ft. Hood, Texas.

Forty-five Purple Heart and Defense of Freedom medals will be awarded to soldiers who were shot by Nidal Hasan in 2009.

“This week has been years late in coming; but, I am so thrilled to see that after years of complaining to the military and this administration, we will finally see the proper honor and medical support provided for the 32 who were injured and proper military honor for the thirteen American patriots who were brutally murdered on November 5, 2009, in Fort Hood, Texas,” said Gohmert.

He said it has been a tragedy that these heroes had to wait five years for this presentation.

“After all the evidence establishing the act of war against our military by a religious radical killing in the same name as those who have killed our military in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is abhorrent that the Obama administration classified this act of terrorism as ‘workplace violence,’” said Gohmert.
