Obama honors soldiers at Fort Hood memorial

President Barack Obama and first lady Michele Obama were in Fort Hood Wednesday to pay tribute to the three soldiers killed and 16 injured in last week's shooting rampage.

"What makes this so painful is that we've been here before," Obama said. "This tragedy tears a wound still raw from five years ago. Once more, soldiers who survived foreign war zone were struck down here at home where they're supposed to be safe."
