Obama makes 'painful' return to Fort Hood

Fort Hood, Texas (CNN) – For the second time in less than five years President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama traveled to Fort Hood in Texas on Wednesday to honor the memory of U.S. Army soldiers killed in a shooting.

"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."
