I will be stepping away from the State of NoVa blog for the next few weeks to undertake some focused reporting and writing for the Dave Sharrett story. Sharrett was an Army soldier from Oakton who was killed by friendly fire in Iraq in January 2008, and his family has struggled mightily to find out how it happened, and why no one was held accountable.

Other Virginia reporters will step up and continue to fill this blog with fascinating items from around Northern Virginia, so keep reading, and I’ll be back soon.

Here are the earlier posts on the Sharrett story:

Vol. 1, Introduction, and Vol. 2, Homework

Vol. 3, Background,

Vol. 4, The Report
