Summary:

The Louisville Courier-Journal used FOIA to obtain an Army investigative report into the death of a wounded veteran at a local post-war treatment facility. An investigation into the 2007 death of Gerald Cassidy, whose injuries were compounded by inadequate treatment and supervision and eventually led to an accidental overdose, spurred reforms to improve treatment of wounded veterans.
