Fort Hood families have been watching closely as the Presidential candidates duke it out on the national stage.
With election day just weeks away, they're targeting the tough issues, and this last debate could change minds at the polls.
"To me, Mitt Romney came off as a businessman, and I don't think that's what we need in office," said National Guardsman and President Obama supporter Andre Jackson.
He said after last night, he won't vote for Romney.
On the other side, Air Force Veteran and Undecided voter Richard VanDyke said, "Obama made too many promises, and he hasn't fulfilled his obligation."
Last night's spirited debate gave both of them a lot to think about.
On immigration, Mitt Romney reaffirmed his strict stance, while the President promoted the pathway to citizenship, but Richard was left wanting to hear more.
"My biggest concern was illegals. I've always been concerned with that, and I personally don't think they even came close to solving the problems," said Richard.
Army wife an Romney supporter Heather Travis honed in on the tax and debt discussion.
"I would like to see breaks for the middle class, for private owned companies," she said.
The candidates grappled over how the other might balance the budget, but both pandered to middle income voters, like Heather.
"I said I would cut taxes for middle class families and that's what I've done," said the President.
"I will not, under any circumstances, reduce the share that's being paid by the highest income tax payers," Romney said.
Some voters want to hear more about military.
"It seems to me, it's just been put on the back burner," said Andre.
That's why he is looking forward to next Monday's debate on foreign policy.
Andre said, "That's our family, that's our career, that's pretty much how they deal with us."
And Richard will be watching closely too, as he decides how he will fill his ballot out next month.
"Right now, I'm leaning in Romney's direction," he said.
These next three weeks will be very telling, as campaigning and debates continue.
Election day is November 6th.
Monday's debate will be at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida.
