Relief comes to Northland residents with family in Fort Hood
It's nearly a 1,300-mile drive from the Twin Ports to Fort Hood, Texas, but Thursday's news of gunfire and mass death at the world's largest military base hit close to home in the Northland.
Nancy Norvell was devastated when she saw the news break. The Duluth resident's son is stationed at Fort Hood.
"My first thought was, 'He survived Iraq only to get shot at Fort Hood, Texas,' " she said. "It was just horrible."
