While his wife was with the doctor at the clinic, Broderick M. Turpin was looking through reading material in the waiting room.

Two men were arrested this week and charged with the fatal shooting of a man during a robbery in Southwest Baltimore in October, according to police and court records. About 9 p.m. Oct. 14, Rubin J. Nelson, 26, was approached by two people while walking in the 1900 block of N. Rosedale St. The pair robbed him of his backpack and then shot him as they fled. Nelson died 40 minutes later, after he was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Robbery apparently was a motive but it was unclear from charging documents what was stolen from Nelson, aside from his backpack.

Spc. Curtis Turpin thought he would be out of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in a month. That was four months ago. The wounded Iraq war veteran is still recovering from abdomen injuries received during an explosion in Baghdad. In the meantime, his wife, Jennifer, has been holed up in a hotel on the hospital campus far from home in Kansas, where he serves in the National Guard. For 31 Walter Reed patients and their families, doctor appointments and medical tests were replaced Friday with breezy conversations on a private cruise on the Severn River aboard a Watermark vessel, the 65-foot Harbor Queen.
