Deployment for Madison Army Reserve unit at Fort Hood is delayed

Email

The Madison Army Reserve unit that had seven casualties in the Fort Hood massacre will not go to Afghanistan next month as scheduled.

Commander Robert LaFountain says the mission is being put off indefinitely, until replacements can be found for the three members who were killed and at least some of the four who were wounded.

When they're ready, the 467th Medical Detachment unit will provide combat-stress counseling for fellow troops in Afghanistan.
