Fort Hood Review

Defense Secretary Robert Gates is putting former U.S. Army Secretary Togo West and former Navy chief Vernon Clark in charge of a broad Pentagon review of the circumstances surrounding the Fort Hood shootings.

Gates said Thursday that the 45-day review will look into gaps in how the military identifies service members who might be a threat to others. It also will look at personnel and medical programs, and at how well U.S. bases are able to respond to mass casualty incidents. For a full account see MSNBC Story.

It will be interesting to see what sort of mandatory training comes out of this study.
