Military families head to Fort Hood ceremony

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - Hundreds of military families and civilians are arriving at the Fort Hood site where victims of last week's shootings will be honored.

Some relatives were wearing red, white and blue ribbons to the Tuesday ceremony where President Barack Obama was to speak later.

Sheila Wormuth, whose husband is stationed at Fort Hood, brought her 3-year-old daughter to the service to show their support. She says her husband wasn't at the shooting site Thursday, but "what happens to my husband's brothers and sisters happens to us."

The ceremony site is a field on the massive post cordoned off with walls of steel shipping containers.

The soldier suspected in the shootings left 13 people dead and 29 wounded remains hospitalized.
