Local Military Family Speaks Out About Fears
FAIRBORN -- Military families undergo a lot of emotions when a loved one goes overseas, and the danger zone is supposed to be there, not here at home.
"The first thing you think of is wow, was he a part of this, was he one of the people that was shot or killed," said John Whitt, son is serving in the Army.
Scenes from November 5, 2009, still haunt Whitt.
"It's bad enough you got to worry about that when he's over in Afghanistan," said Whitt, "And then he comes home and then you have to worry about him when he's at a base."
Whitt's son was one of many who was at Fort Hood during the largest military base massacre in the history of the nation.
"As soon as it happened in Fort Hood, it was like the first thing I wanted to do was call and find out and make sure that he was okay," he said.
He was, but Monday's tragedy in Washington, DC at the navy yard brought back horrible memories and fear.
"The bases where your children are at are supposed to be safe places," he said, "Places where people can't get on them with whatever it is they do to get on the bases. They're supposed to be checked and double checked and triple checked, to make sure that these people can't get on these bases, where our friends and family and relatives are at and stationed."
As more information about the tragic shooting comes out, Whitt thinks about the family and friends of all affected.
"It could have easily been my son," he said, "And I was just fortunate enough that it wasn't my son this time around."
Whitt says his son is still stationed at Fort Hood, but will be coming home for good in November.

US economy grows at 3.6 percent rate in 3rd qtr.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. economy grew at a 3.6 percent annual rate from July through September, the fastest since early 2012. But nearly half the growth came from a buildup in business stockpiles, a trend that could reverse in the current quarter and hold back growth.
