    Aaron Thomas Nemelka had just finished his advanced individual training as a combat engineer and was preparing to deploy to Iraq in early 2010 when he was cut down in the Fort Hood shooting Nov. 5, 2009. The 19-year-old joined the Army in October, a military spokesperson for the family told ABC News. The youngest of four children, Nemelka was an Eagle Scout and volunteered for the military out of high school. "[His family] was very, very proud of him for wanting to serve," casualty assistance officer Tammy Sower told ABC News. "He basically entered the military because he wanted to serve."

    One of the victims, 29-year-old Amy Krueger, came from such a small town in Wisconsin that her family broke the news of her death to the community through the local high school. "She was a typical small-town kid, very well connected to her high school," Kiel High School Principal Dario Talerico told ABC News of the 1998 graduate. "It's a small town, small community. Everybody knows everybody. I really hits close to home."

    Cpl. Nathan Hewitt, 27, helped his fellow soldiers escape the carnage, despite taking a bullet to the hip and calf. "I heard somebody shooting at them, and then I tried to get people out with me as I saw a way to get out," Hewitt told ABC News. "There was people hurt worse than I was. I was trying to help them out before I worried about myself. Pray for the ones that didn't make it and the ones that are hurt worse than I am."

    Army Spc. Keara Bono, 21, was shot twice during the rampage in Fort Hood. One bullet hit her in the back and another grazed her head, her mother, Peggy McCarty, told "Good Morning America." Bono's husband, Joey Torkelson, said he got a call from Bono but could only hear screaming. Later, another soldier called Bono to tell him she was all right. Finally, Bono called her husband to tell him she had survived. "They shot me, and I'm still here in this country," Bono said, according to Torkelson. A soldier who was with Bono removed a bullet from a wounded soldier on the scene, rather than waiting for evacuation, Torkelson said.
