Army trauma units failing to meet needs of soldiers

James Dao and Dan Frosch, of The New York Times, report on Warrior Transition Units that were created in the wake of the Walter Reed scandal. Meant as safe havens for soldiers as they recuperated from injuries and transitioned back into active duty or civilian life, the units "are far from being restful sanctuaries. For many soldiers, they have become warehouses of despair, where damaged men and women are kept out of sight, fed a diet of powerful prescription pills and treated harshly by noncommissioned officers."
