Funeral services are scheduled at Arlington National Cemetery today for a military physician assistant from Maryland killed in the recent shooting at Fort Hood, Texas.

Lieutenant Colonel Juanita Warman of Havre De Grace, Md. was 55 years old. She was preparing for deployment to Iraq when an Army psychiatrist at Fort Hood allegedly opened fire on fellow soldiers, killing thirteen. Warman is survived by two daughters and six grandchildren.

A second soldier killed in the attack will be laid to rest on Wednesday. Fifty-two year old Major Libardo Eduardo Caraveo of Woodbridge, Virginia was an immigrant from Mexico. He had a doctorate in psychology and was preparing to deploy to Afghanistan.
