Fort Hood: Four soldiers apparently killed themselves

Four soldiers from the Fort Hood Army base in Texas - all decorated veterans from the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan - died in the past week, a Fort Hood spokesman said Wednesday.

In all four cases, it appears the soldiers took their own lives, spokesman Christopher Haug said.

    Thanks for keeping the story so short and sweet. I hate reading lots of details about unimportant incidents like this.

    BTW, is Michael Jackson still dead? I'd like to read a detailed story about something important like that!

    I'm sure they haven't had time to get details or there are no details released yet. Unbelievably tragic. There are lots of soldier suicides in general. The only good that might come out of this is that it will become a spotlight issue.

    I do believe this is news, what is the follow-up? Who, what, why? I can't believe you didn't have more before you posted this.

    Concur. Why do we not pay more attention to our soldier's concerns, and less about celebrities? These people need our support!

    Agreed Hall! Sad times we are living in when movie stars get more coverage than people who have made such sacrifices for our country!

    I agree with hall too but, the media prints what consumers read. it's just as much our fault. this post probably has half the hits those lohan updates have.

    I'm quite disappointed that CNN treats the tragic death of 4 service people in 1 short sentence. These peole served our country yet it seems that folks such as Lindsey Lohan gets a bigger write up. I could care less about the "unfortunate" Ms Lohan

    A story about soldiers with problems so severe they take their own lives and you print a blurp. I read your article earlier about the soldiers on trial for taking someone else's life and it was very detailed. I take it that these poor souls were not news worthy because they chose to hurt themselves instead of the public, either here or defending this country. SMH

      It's a "blurb", not a "blurp."

      Thank you....."Just in......." may imply, "more to follow." Everybody calm down. I'm pretty sure CNN knows what they're doing.
