WASHINGTON -- After a third white soldier was charged in the killing of a black couple in Fayetteville, N.C., Army officials said that they were examining whether there were any patterns of extremist activity at Fort Bragg because the three harbored Nazi flags and white supremacist literature.Maj. Rivers Johnson, a spokesman for the Army's 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, said in a statement Friday that the shootings were an "isolated incident," but he acknowledged that the division was "reviewing the units" for any evidence of "patterns of activity that are incompatible with Army policy."

FORT BRAGG, N.C. -- Outside the Smoke Bomb Hill Chapel on this deserted army post yesterday, military wives hugged one another and cheered themselves with this verse from "A GI Family's Prayer:""On land and sand and sea and air, I back my soldier with this prayer. No matter how far he's forced to roam, just bring, I pray, my GI home."Across the nation, it was a day of prayer and patriotism -- the first full day of the allied forces' ground assault.Everywhere, the talk was of the land war."

Two high profile military sexual assault cases ended with big losses for the prosecution last month. At Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Army Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair pleaded guilty to reduced charges and received a light sentence of a written reprimand and a fine. At the Naval Academy in Maryland, Midshipman Joshua Tate was found not guilty of sexually assaulting an intoxicated female classmate. General Sinclair engaged in a lengthy affair with a subordinate who accused him of threatening her and forcing her to engage in sex acts, but who herself faced the possibility of disciplinary action for their inappropriate relationship.

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - On Wednesday, Spc. Phil McIlroy came home from Iraq. Yesterday, the 22-year-old visited a stone marker here bearing the name of a friend in the 82nd Airborne Division who died in an ambush last year when both were in Afghanistan. McIlroy has heard news reports about the abuse of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. He has been told that one of the accused Cumberland-based reservists, Pvt. Lynndie England, is at nearby Fort Bragg awaiting possible charges. To McIlroy, the abuse of prisoners is plain wrong and, based on his stints in Iraq and Afghanistan, rare.

An Army commander at Fort Bragg, N.C., has ordered Pfc. Lynndie R. England to face a military court-martial on 19 charges connected to the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal, overriding an earlier recommendation that some counts against the young Army reservist be dropped. The Army announced yesterday that Lt. Gen. John R. Vines, commander of the XVIII Airborne Corps at Fort Bragg, referred England to trial by a general court-martial. Her trial, scheduled to begin Jan. 17, is for now the only one arising from the scandal to play out inside the United States.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. - To hear Brig. Gen. Bill Fox tell it, it was "just another day" at this sprawling Army post on the Carolina coastal plane where paratroopers train. The huge Air Force C-17 transport made three passes over the "drop zone," disgorging its load of medical supplies and units of the 44th Medical Brigade, the only airborne medical brigade in the Army. The soldiers - X-ray technicians, doctors and nurses among them - floated gracefully to earth and quickly began setting up a field hospital, just as they practice doing almost monthly.

Opening statements in the case of a Naval Academy midshipman charged with sexually assaulting a classmate were delayed by Monday's snowstorm. The federal government closed in the Washington area on Monday, including the Washington Navy Yard where the court-martial is taking place. Midshipman Joshua Tate of Nashville is charged with aggravated sexual assault and making false statements. On Friday, he chose to be tried by a judge rather than a jury of Navy and Marine Corps officers.

When Ty Ruff, a 22-year-old Baltimorean, heard that he'd be a castmate in "The Real World: D.C.," he was disappointed. The previous season had been filmed in Cancun, Mexico, and the one before that took place in Brooklyn, N.Y. Once he settled in, though, being in Dupont Circle "was like ... the other side of the world." Ruff moved into the house at 2100 S St. on July 2 with seven strangers, but the castmates, some of whom were just 5 years old when the original "The Real World" was broadcast in 1992, can't say much about the 23rd season of the show, which is scheduled to premiere at 10 p.m. Dec. 30 on MTV. Their tight-lipped spiels sound rehearsed, as each castmate chants the "live hard, play hard" mantra they say defines D.C. culture.

Ethel Bohle was in the attic of her Severn home Friday morning, retrieving photos of her grandson, Brad, from more than five dozen albums and recalling memories of the 29-year-old soldier who was killed this week in Afghanistan. One of her favorite memories involved her husband, Edward, who died three years ago. "They would do woodworking together, and Brad even had a lathe in his house," she said. "After they were done working, Pop would make him a milkshake and shave the ice for it. When Brad's father came to tell me the bad news, he said, 'I guess Brad and Pop are having a milkshake.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. - The first public court hearing for Pfc. Lynndie R. England was postponed yesterday until mid-July, signaling possible plea negotiations that could allow the young woman who became one of the most visible faces in the Iraqi prison abuse scandal to avoid a military trial. Asked in a brief phone interview yesterday whether she was involved in plea talks, an attorney for England said: "Yes, I have been." But the Colorado-based lawyer, Rose Mary Zapor, quickly amended her remarks to say she would not comment.
