    Maj. L. Eduardo Caraveo

    A Woodbridge, Va. man and a woman from Havre De Grace, Md., were among the victims of Thursday's shootings at Fort Hood.

    Maj. L. Eduardo Caraveo was one of three people in his unit allegedly killed by lone gunman, Maj. Nadil Malik Hasan. Seven others were injured.

    Caraveo, a clinical psychologist, had arrived in the United States in his teens from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, knowing very little English said his son, also named Eduardo Caraveo.

    He earned his doctorate in psychology from the University of Arizona and worked with bilingual special-needs students at Tucson-area schools before entering private practice.

    His son told the Arizona Daily Star in Tucson that Caraveo had arrived at Fort Hood on Wednesday and was preparing to deploy to Afghanistan. Eduardo Caraveo spoke to the newspaper from his mother's Tucson home.

    His father's Web site says he offered marriage seminars with a company based in Woodbridge, Va.

    Lt. Col. Juanita Warman, 55, of Havre De Grace, was a military physician assistant with two daughters and six grandchildren.

    A half-sister, Kristina Rightweiser, said Warman was from a military family. Their father, who died in 2007, was a “career military man,” Rightweiser served in the Air Force, and Rightweiser's brother is in the Coast Guard. The two women didn't grow up together, but reconnected after their father's death, Rightweiser said.

    Warman “loved the Army and loved her family very much,” she said in a message sent through Facebook.

    Another sister, Margaret Yaggie of Roaring Branch in north-central Pennsylvania, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Warman attended Pittsburgh Langley High School and put herself through school at the University of Pittsburgh. She said Warman spent most of her career in the military.

    Warman at one point worked at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. She wrote an article about using surgery to treat obesity in adolescents. An article from 2007 listed her as working in the mental health division of the Perry Point Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Maryland and co-leading a health fair discussion on “Women Trauma and Returning Veterans.”

    Hasan, a Virginia native, is suspected of killing 13 people and injuring as many as 30 others in the shootings.

    A memorial service will be held Tuesday for those killed. President Obama is scheduled to be there.
