The U.S. Army is going to award the Purple Heart to the victims of the 2009 Food Hood killings, various media reported on Friday.
Sources told Fox News that the decision will be widely announced next week. Family members have been pressuring the military to bestow the Purple Heart honor — as well as the accompanying lifelong medical and financial benefits — for years
The Fort Hood shootings, carried out by former Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan, were classified acts of “workplace violence,” even though media outlets and witnesses reported that he shouted “Allahu Akbar” while opening fire.
Hasan was convicted in August 2013, after which his attorney released letters to Fox News that indicated he pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of the Islamic State.
