Lopez serves in Iraq


Lopez is deployed to Iraq for four months, where he is truck driver during the time American forces are withdrawing from the country.  There is no record that Lopez saw combat or was injured. He gains no combat citations or ribbons. Officials say that this does not mean Lopez was not suffering serious psychological problems — only that they did not appear combat-related, as is often associated with soldiers suffering from PTSD. According to a spokesman, Lopez “self-reported” a brain injury.
