Stryker soldier says beating made him talk of unit's drug use in Afghanistan

The beating Spc. Justin Stoner took at the hands of seven platoon mates in May sealed his decision to talk with Army investigators about drug use and other possible illegal activity in their Stryker unit, he testified Wednesday. Stoner’s complaints triggered an investigation that resulted in misconduct charges against Sgt. Darren Jones and 11 other members of the 5th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division. Five are accused of murdering Afghan civilians.
