    A tear falls from Scooby-Doo's eye in a sculpture that honors Nov. 5, 2009, Fort Hood shooting victim Pfc. Francheska Velez, July 22, 2014. "This one is tough," said artist Troy Kelley, who was commissioned to design the Nov. 5, 2009, Fort Hood Shooting Memorial using objects and symbols that were dear to the victims. "She was pregnant. We've been saying there were 13 killed, but there were 14. I spoke to [Velez's] father and said I would really like to honor that baby, and he said he would love it if I could. I'd already made the large Scooby-Doo, so we scooted it back on the base and I sculpted a baby Scooby-Doo, and I made the little tail stubby, and put two little tears in its eyes. I attended the [Nidal Hasan] trial by closed circuit, and three or four witnesses mentioned that Francheska's last words were, 'My baby, my baby.'" (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.
