A soldier suspected of killing 16 Afghan villagers Sunday comes from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, one of the largest military installations in the U.S. and one that has seen its share of controversies and violence in the past few years.The base, home to about 100,000 military and civilian personnel, has suffered a spate of suicides among soldiers back from war. The Army is investigating whether doctors at Lewis-McChord's Madigan Army Medical Center were urged to consider the cost of providing benefits when reviewing diagnoses of post-traumatic stress disorder. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57395145/shooting-suspect-from-most-troubled-u.s-base/?tag=stack
