While waiting for a Video Link at ABC News I went over to see if the CBS Report, that some of us knew was coming for a few days now, was up yet, the report was there sans the video with Carissa Picard, of Military Spouces for Change but I found a few more, one with the family members.

Carissa sent out and posted the report she was interviewed for as well as that video, you will find them all below with linkbacks to the reports.
