A bullet pierced the back of Army Pfc. George Stratton III’s left shoulder and exited the front during a shooting rampage Nov. 5 at Fort Hood, Texas.
Stratton, 18, was photographed with President Barack Obama during the president’s visit to Fort Hood. The signature on his brigade coin says “God bless. Barack Obama.”
