Violence follows some soldiers home from war

A two-day series by Dave Phillips of The (Colorado Springs, Colo.) Gazette retraces the steps of soldiers who have returned from war and ended up incarcerated for crimes they committed upon their return to civilian life. Ten soldiers from Fort Carson's 4th Infantry Division's 4th Brigade Combat Team have "been arrested and accused of murder, attempted murder or manslaughter since 2006. Others have committed suicide, or tried to." Phillips conducted months of interviews with soldiers and their families. He also reviewed court, military and medical records for this series.
