Fort Hood spokesman Tyler Broadway said that 12 Fort Hood soldiers were on Thursday’s convoy training exercise on a dirt road parallel to a paved road that the base had closed because of the risk of flooding. A rush of water overturned the 2½-ton Light Medium Tactical Vehicle. Two bodies were found in the vehicle and three others were found downstream from it hours later. The last four missing soldiers were found dead downstream Friday, said Maj. Gen. John Uberti, deputy Fort Hood commander.
Three others pulled from the water were released Friday from Fort Hood’s hospital, Uberti said at a Friday evening briefing.
