APNewsBreak: Army to review hurt troops' treatment

The general in charge of the Army's more than 9,000 wounded soldiers is ordering a review of how the ones at North Carolina's Fort Bragg are being punished for minor violations.
Brig. Gen. Gary Cheek is asking the Army Surgeon General to look at all discipline that has been taken against soldiers in the base's Warrior Transition unit to make sure each case was fair.
Cheek's comments come a day after The Associated Press reported that soldiers in the unit are being disciplined three times as often as those in the base's main tenant, the 82nd Airborne Division. The AP also found that discipline rates vary widely across the Warrior Transition system.
