From Texas Standard:

We talk a lot about how the trajectory of the nation turned in the months and years that followed September 11, 2001. One of the many lives that took a turn that day was that of David Peters.

He was a former Marine who reenlisted as an Army chaplain after 9/11. Peters was attached to a combat unit on the ground in Iraq and then served as a chaplain at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in New York. Although he now works and lives in Austin and the surrounding area, on September 11, 2015, Father Peters will return to New York. He’ll be giving a sermon at St. Paul’s Chapel near ground zero.

The recent on-camera shooting of two television journalists in Virginia has led some to ask whether workplaces could be better prepared for these types of scenarios. So what can employers do?

The worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9-11 happened in Texas. Nov 5 2009 – Nidal Hasan opens fire at Fort Hood. How did this happen, that an outspoken radicalized madman could do so much deadly damage?  

How were red flags missed? The book Death on Base - The Fort Hood Massacre tell the story that the Army didn’t want revealed. 

Death on Base is an in-depth look at the events surrounding the tragic mass murder and an investigation into the causes and influences that factored into the attack.

It was a sad day in Houston, as the family, friends and colleagues of Harris County Sheriff's Deputy Darren Goforth attended his funeral Friday. In an apparent attempt to ease their grief, a couple who were at the gas station where Goforth was killed came forward Friday to tell the family that after he was attacked, they had sat with the deputy to wait for help.

There was an execution-style murder of a Houston deputy last week. Two days later, an off-duty officer in Abilene was found dead at his home. It was ruled a homicide.
