Officials say the number of soldiers who died in floodwaters during a training exercise at Fort Hood has risen to nine.
Three soldiers rescued Thursday after the training exercise were released from a medical facility. The U.S. Army cleared them to return to duty, a deputy commanding general at Fort Hood said.
At a press conference, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said once an investigation is complete, the military will work to prevent similar incidents in the future.
