Welcome Back Warrior

The government was supposed to take care of mentally disabled Marine combat veteran Brian Callan. It didn't.

Officer Geoff White notes that Callan had attached his military ID dog tags to one of the bootlaces he was wearing when he died. That has led police to conclude that the ex-Marine probably had gone to Bell Road Toyota primed for a violent clash.

But many of Callan's longtime friends say he always wore the dog tags with those boots.

Sean Callan says he spoke a few days after the tragedy to Dr. Dennis Grant, Brian Callan's psychiatrist at the VA. He says Grant told him he was "shocked" by the suicide, and that Callan had been a topnotch soldier in whom he should have great pride.
