Fresh on News Cut: Saving Pvt. Hafterson

Posted at 12:33 PM on September 30, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

MPR's Bob Collins writes about Saving Pvt. Hafterson on News Cut:

Ronald Bradley is seeing first-hand the difficulties American soldiers are having getting treatment for the post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) they suffered as a result of their service in Iraq.

Bradley, an attorney and friend of the family, is trying to keep Marine Pvt. Travis Hafterson, 21, alive long enough to get him some treatment, but Hafterson has fallen into the hands of the military justice system, which he thinks may be more interested in punishing Hafterson than treating him.

Read - and comment - on the story. Is saving Pvt. Hafterson possible?
