Following Copter Attack, G.I. Families Grieve
For the men, women and families of Fort Carson, Colo., Sunday's attack on a Chinook helicopter in Iraq was the worst combat loss since the Vietnam War. The army base has lost 21 soldiers during U.S. operations in Iraq. One soldier killed in Sunday's attack, Sgt. Ernie Bucklaw, was headed home for his mother's funeral. NPR's Anthony Brooks reports.
