14 Officers Fired or Suspended After Fort Hood Investigation

HeadlineDec 09, 2020

In Texas, the U.S. Army has fired or suspended 14 officers and soldiers stationed at Fort Hood. This comes following an investigation into sexual assaults and murders at Fort Hood, including the bludgeoning to death of 20-year-old soldier Vanessa Guillén, whose remains were found in July. The probe was spurred in large part by pressure and advocacy from the Guillén family. In response to the news, Vanessa’s sister Mayra Guillén said on Twitter, “This isn’t justice. Those responsible need to be held accountable not just fired. #JusticeForVanessaGuillen.”
