Ret. Army Sgt. Howard Ray, awarded for saving the lives of 9 people in the Ft. Hood massacre, said it's a "slap in the face" that the 2009 incident is not called terrorism.
"It really is a slap in the face that the Department of Defense called this something other than what it truly is — that is, terrorism," Ray said Monday on "Fox & Friends."
Ray, who is running for the Texas state House, called on the White House to label the shooting rampage an act of terrorism so that the victims can receive appropriate compensation.
"What's important is that government officials, starting at the White House, demand that this be, first of all, classified as it is, terrorism," Ray said.
