(KCEN) -- Three years ago today the rest of the world watched in horror after a gunman opened fire on Fort Hood.
Thirteen people lost their lives and 32 others were wounded.
Accused Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan was eventually shot five times by Sergeant Mark Todd.
Hasan was partially paralyzed and taken into custody.
After years of court wrangling, Hasan's trial is still pending.
Twelve soldiers and one civilian died in that massacre.
And today those victims were remembered at the future site for the Fort Hood shooting memorial.
Thirteen American flags were placed in a circle where the memorial will eventually be built.
A moment of silence was also held for the many victims of the shooting.
So far the organization behind the memorial has raised $150,000.
But there's still a long way to go before construction, with $250,000 in donations still needed.
A local bronze smith is donating 13 bronze statues for each person who was killed on post.
Each of them with a personal touch.
