President Obama will visit Fort Hood on Wednesday to attend a memorial service for the victims of a mass shooting at the army post last weekend. The gunman, Spc. Ivan Lopez, killed three and wounded 16 others before killing himself. The president also attended a memorial service at Fort Hood in 2009, after Major Nidal Hassan killed 13 people at the base.When a major military tragedy like the shooting at Fort Hood happens, an organization called the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) springs into action. Sheri Beck, the director of the TAPS survivor care team, joins Here & Now’s Robin Young from Fort Hood to discuss what the organization does in such a circumstance.
