NC5 Investigates: Dishonorable Deceptions

Army Completes Recruiting Probe

(Story created: 6/15/07)

The U.S. Army says it has wrapped up its investigation of three recruiters who were caught on hidden cameras by our "NewsChannel 5 Investigates" team.

Now, their careers are in the hands of the major general in charge of Army recruiting.

The investigation conducted by local officers focuses on the recruiters and their Dishonorable Deceptions.

We caught them urging a potential recruit to lie about his use of the psychiatric medication Zoloft.

It followed the suicide of a local soldier whose family says he had been urged to lie about his dependence on the drug.

Army officials won't say what actions they've recommended to the recruiting command at Fort Knox.

But they say they expect the general to make his decision soon.
