Report redactions

The official report from the 2016 accident which killed eight Fort Hood soldiers and a West Point cadet is mostly redacted.

This Saturday marks the two-year anniversary of the death of eight Fort Hood soldiers and one U.S. Military Academy at West Point cadet in a military vehicle rollover accident during a flash flood at a low-water crossing on Owl Creek.

Since August 2016, the Herald has been seeking copies of the unit and Army reports on the investigation. Fort Hood has not made the unit investigation report, known as an Army Regulation 15-6, available to the public, but a copy was provided in January 2017 to the Herald by the widow of Staff Sgt. Miguel Angel Colonvazquez, Ngo T. Pham. | 254-501-7554
