Fort Hood Victims of "Workplace Violence" Finally Recognized

From the Blog, "Legal Insurrection" today:
In 2009, Nidal Hasan opened fire on Fort Hood.
When the bullets finally stopped flying, 13 people lay dead, and another 32 were injured in what was the deadliest attack ever on a U.S. military installation. The United States government deemed the attack “Workplace Violence”, drawing backlash amongst military advocates. Congress, led by a delegation from Texas, worked over the course of several years to reverse that label and retroactively award those injured or killed in the attack with eligibility for the Purple Heart and its associated benefits.
Now, almost 5 years later, victims and families have finally gathered together to pay tribute to Hasan’s victims. 
And this from KXAN the local TV station:

One could say "better late than never," but the scandalous behavior of this administration and the military "leadership" that allowed this act of terror by an avowed Radical Islamist to be labeled "workplace violence" for more than five years should never be forgotten.
