CNN: Special Investigations Unit - Battlefield Breakdown, reported by chief national correspondent John King, examines the unexpected consequences associated with the protracted war in Iraq. Battlefield Breakdown premieres on Saturday, June 30, and Sunday, July 1, at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. All times Eastern.
To get an inside glimpse at the true costs of this war, CNN: Special Investigations Unit visited the front lines in Iraq and Kuwait, U.S. Army depots across the United States and the Wisconsin home of a family that paid the ultimate price in Iraq and believes their son was a victim of bad planning and inadequate training.

Following King's visit to Balad, there was an article published in the March edition of the AMC Outpost. The AMC Outpost is a publication of the Army Materiel Command 402nd Army Field Support Brigade Public Affairs Office. Unfortunately, the March issue is no longer available online, but their editor, Ms. Debbie O'Connor was kind enough to provide me an electronic copy.

The visit was a great way to demonstrate the brigade’s ability to synchronize Army Materiel Command battlefield repair capabilities while highlighting the brigade’s commitment to Warfighter support. Plans call for the story to air in six to eight weeks.
