The story of Robert Quinones:
Fifteen months of carnage in Iraq had left the 29-year-old debilitated by post-traumatic stress disorder.

So, early on Labor Day morning last year, after topping off a night of drinking with a handful of sleeping pills, Quinones barged into Fort Stewart’s hospital, forced his way to the third-floor psychiatric ward and held three soldiers hostage, demanding better mental health treatment.
