FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - With the traditional roll call of the fallen, rifle salutes and sounding of taps, Fort Hood ended its ceremonial farewell to three soldiers killed in an April 2 shooting rampage.

Speaking from behind three battlefield crosses, President Barack Obama, Army Secretary John McHugh, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno and Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, Fort Hood's commander, paid tribute to the three.

Each told of the life achievements of Sgt. 1st Class Daniel Michael Ferguson, Staff Sgt. Carlos A. Lazaney-Rodriguez and Sgt. Timothy Wayne Owens and vowed that they and grieving families watching from a front row won't be forgotten.

Staff Sgt. Cheryl Reese then sang singing "Amazing Grace" and Col. Matthew Goff, Fort Hood chaplain, spoke on Psalm 46, a poem of faith amid chaos and turmoil.
