There will be two primary Fort Hood memorial services one year after the shootings that left 14 dead and 35 wounded on November 5, 2009. One will span two days - November 5 and 6. It will be sponsored by the City of Killeen (Fort Hood). It is sanctioned by the City and the military. Its purpose is to commemorate the fallen and the wounded but the truth about the ideology of the shooter, Nidal Malik Hasan is certain to be ignored.

Enter the other memorial, which is being sponsored by the International Counter-Terrorism Officers Association on November 21st. It is being organized by the Forum For Middle Eastern Understanding. The local ABC affiliate there - KXXV News Channel 25 - reported on the story of a letter that was sent out by the Killeen Chamber of Commerce last week.

That letter, as well as several billboards (pictured) that popped up in the area are serving as a source of controversy. One of the billboards is said to be very close to the entrance of Fort Hood. Here is an excerpt from the KXXV report:
The "Fort Hood Memorial" event name is also the same name for the planned Fort Hood memorial structure next to the Killeen Conference Center. Killeen chamber officials wouldn't go on camera but said the letter was straight-forward in making a difference between the two for its members, and not an attempt to take donations away.

Davies still feels it's an attempt to drag his donations down. He also says it's the nature of his speakers that might have some people worried. At least two former Jihadists turned counter-terrorist spokespersons are scheduled to make speeches.

The events are planned on separate days. The Fort Hood memorial unveiling is on November 5th, and the Forum for Middle-East Understandings event is on November 21st.
Here is the video report from KXXV.
