The committee working toward construction of a memorial honoring the victims of the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting at Fort Hood has revitalized its efforts to raise funds, and the memorial could be built as soon as the next anniversary of the tragic shooting.

In an effort to break ground on the project next month and begin construction soon after, the committee has taken on a new marketing initiative, which includes the launch of a new website — www.November5Memorial.com.
