Monday marks the third anniversary of the mass shooting on Fort Hood.
On Nov. 5 2009, Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire on Post, killing 13 people. It's considered the worst mass shooting on a U.S. military base in history.
The trial for Hasan has been delayed several times. Hasan faces 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.
The court ruled Hasan could be forced to shave his beard because it does not meet military grooming standards. Hasan's lawyers maintain his beard is a form of religious expression. He faces the death penalty if convicted in the shooting.
One victim of the Nov. 5 attack is running to bring awareness to the difficulties facing those who were wounded.
Chief Warrant Officer Christopher Royal was shot twice in the lower back as he waited in the Soldier Readiness Center where the shooting occurred. He said some of the victims were hurt so badly they had to leave active duty.
The Department of Defense has deemed the attack an act of workplace violence, and not terrorism, so soldiers lose out on many benefits.
Royal started running last week. He's scheduled to complete his mission to bring his message to the steps of the State Capitol Monday.
