Fort Hood shooting victim creates nonprofit organization for other victims


A victim of the 2009 Fort Hood shooting has created a nonprofit organization for the other 31 injured soldiers to get the help they need.

Christopher Royal was shot twice in the back during the 2009 Fort Hood shooting. Since then, he has made serious strides to assist those who were also affected by the massacre. In 2011, he created the 32 Still Standing Foundation.

"It just hit my heart one day to start the foundation, and do whatever I can for whoever I can," Royal said. "I saw a need, because I felt the soldiers were affected by that 2009 shooting should have extra incentives."

The 32 Still Standing Foundation is creating a boot camp that focuses on fighting obesity. That boot camp will begin in April.
