Troop deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq led to a dramatic increase in divorce among Army couples from 2001 to 2004, including many stationed at Fort Bragg. WRAL's Focal Point documentary "Divided We Fall" examines the cause of divorce in the military and looks at how the high divorce rate has changed the way the Army deals with issues of marriage and family life.
