Ft. Leonard Wood Dealing With Meningitis

For the second time in less than two weeks, another soldier from Ft. Leonard Wood has been diagnosed with Meningitis. According to the article found in the Springfield News-Leader, both individuals have the non-contagious form. A little over a week ago the first soldier died. Now the second is listed in serious, but stable condition at St. John's Hospital in Springfield.

Both were from the same unit, and neither has had their name released to the public. Sounds a little suspicious to me. The CDC and the Surgeon General's office have been briefed on the situation and are investigating. I have a feeling we will be hearing more about this story in the days to come.
