CBS Evening News ready to tell story of Spc. Joseph Dwyer

Story Draws National Media Spotlight


The story of former soldier Joseph Dwyer's death and struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder has been picked up by several national news outlets.
The CBS Evening News contacted The Pilot Tuesday and is working on a story, tentatively to air Thursday night. Newsday and the Associated Press both picked up the story Monday. USA Today ran a reprint of an Army Times story Tuesday. Even the Melbourne, Australia, newspaper The Age ran a story.

Dwyer died at his Pinehurst home June 28. Pinehurst police believe an accidental overdose of inhalants and prescription drugs caused his death.

Dwyer became famous in 2003 when a photograph of him running with an Iraqi boy in his arms appeared in newspapers, magazines and television programs. Army Times photographer Warren Zinn took the photograph during one of the first days of the war as Dwyer ran the boy to a makeshift Army hospital.
