Preparations are underway for a memorial service at Fort Hood to honor the 12 soldiers and one civilian killed in the shooting.
President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are expected to attend.
Lt. Gen. Robert Cone said some of the wounded, as well as the families of those killed and wounded also plan to attend.
Soldiers said the service is a way to help them move on.
"I think we all want to trust each other, especially soldiers," 2nd Lt. Tristan Archambault said. "You want to trust the man to your left and right so I think this will raise morale and give some kind of closure to the families."
The service is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. Tuesday, and according Lt. Gen. Cone, it will be a traditional service.
Fort Hood officials said that members of the general public wanting to attend the memorial should arrive early.
Attendees should enter through the Clear Creek gate, and follow the signs to a parking area. Shuttle buses will begin taking people to the memorial service area at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
No reservations or tickets are required. However, everyone attending will be expected to pass through airport-like security screening, and visitors will not be allowed to carry bags, back packs, umbrellas, liquids or sharp objects. No strollers will be allowed in the memorial area. Cameras will be permitted.
