Honoring 14 Dead in the Attack on Fort Hood

The following needs no introduction except to say Pvt. Francheska Velez, known as Cheka to family and friends, was 3 months pregnant, bringing the total dead in the attack on Fort Hood to 14. She had plans to become an Army psychiatrist. Captain Russell Seagar was a civilian psychiatrist. He joined the Army to counsel those returning to civilian life, and died by the hands of one being paid and protected to do the same.
