Suspect Soldiers series

"A yearlong examination by The Sacramento Bee of more than 250 applicants for military service found that the Army, Navy and Marines accepted ex-felons, people with serious drug and alcohol or mental health problems and dozens of others with significant criminal backgrounds or otherwise troubling histories." In the series, Russ Carollo reports on how trouble followed these individuals into service, and often upon their return to civilian life. The investigation revealed that some crimes originally attributed to post-traumatic stress disorder where perpetrated by individuals who had criminal histories prior to their service in Iraq.
