IN National Guardsman's death could be linked to water in Iraq

An Indiana National Guardsman's death could be linked to the battlefield's in Iraq.  Until now, the family of 42 year old Sergeant David Moore didn't know why he died after returning home to Jasper after a tour of duty in Iraq in 2003.

Now, a letter of caution sent to the roughly 600 soldiers in the Jasper, Indiana unit says they may have come into contact with a highly toxic chemical while serving near a water treatment facility in Basrah.  The water was not used for drinking, but for the oil fields.

It hasn't been confirmed that contaminated water was the cause of Sergeant Moore's death, but several of the symptoms fit.
