Bennet seeks probe of military dismissals

Published On: Nov 07 2013 11:27:51 AM CST

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet wants an investigation into reports the military kicked wounded soldiers out of the service for behavior that could be related to their injuries.

Bennet said he plans to introduce a bill in Congress on Thursday that will try to determine if the military has a policy on those dismissals.
The Colorado Springs Gazette reported in May that the number of soldiers discharged for minor misconduct increased 25 percent since 2009, including many soldiers who had post-traumatic stress disorder and other battle-related injuries.
