BRAZORIA COUNTY—The Military Moms and Wives of Brazoria County are always concerned about the men and women in our armed forces. In fact, the organization is where Karen McFatter spends much of her time.
"I enjoy this. It helps me a lot. It helps me deal with two boys in the Army," said McFatter.
One day after the tragedy at Fort Hood, McFatter came back for more support.
"It scared me," McFatter said. "It upset me even though I know my sons weren't there. I know as a mother how horrible it must have been for them."
Mary Moreno organizes much of what you see here. She says she couldn't believe what happened on American soil.
"Listening to the news and hearing about this individual yesterday at Fort Hood, you know things go through your head and you wonder how many out there are like him?" said Moreno.
Every year the Military Moms and Wives of Brazoria County send out about 5,000 care packages and members say tragedies like the one at Fort Hood will only strengthen their resolve.
"God bless all of them," McFatter said. "I just hope they can get through this."
For now, organizations like this one will just keep sending out support.
"This tragedy will go behind us and these boxes will go out and hopefully if it reaches someone that needed to have a smile on his face," said Moreno. "You know he's going to say from the great state of Texas, they sent this to me."
