U.S. troops among victims of Colorado movie shooting

WASHINGTON (CNN) - U.S. troops were among the casualties in the shooting rampage at the Colorado movie theater, the Pentagon spokesman said.

"Initial indications are some service members were casualties," Press Secretary George Little said Friday at the Pentagon.

He would not specify how many troops were involved or whether they dead or wounded.

A US official tells Barbara Starr that at this point the US military has two Navy personnel injured in the Colorado attack as well as two Air Force reservists.

Buckley AFB in Aurora, Colorado, is the closest military base to the scene of the shootings. Spokesman Master Sgt. Jill Lavoie said some of the wounded were from Buckley.

About 10,000 troops - including members of the Air Force, Army and Marine Corps - are stationed at Buckley. Soon after the shooting, the base initiated a head count, Lavoie said.

One of the units on base is the 743rd Military Intelligence Battalion.

A post Friday on its Facebook page said that the Traumatic Stress Response Team (Mental Health Support) and Emergency Family Assistance Control Center (EFACC) had been activated at the base chapel. "If you or family members need assistance or counseling following the aftermath of the Aurora Movie Theater shooting, you can meet with the teams standing by to help you," the posting says.

    Hi, I do believe your website might be having web browser compatibility problems. When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from that, great website!
