GALESBURG, Illinois - Tonight a Quad City area soldier is in Afghanistan being forced to stay to face charges connected to pictures his mother sent to him. The mother says the pictures were designed to ease the homesickness of life on the warfront but she had no idea they would lead to a child pornography investigation and months of wondering whether the accusations would bring charges. 8 On Your Side Reporter Chris Williams looked into the case.

Inside the Galesburg home decorated with two blue stars the Millers worry for their soldier son's safety. He's not in the hands of the enemy but these days they feel the U.S. Army has become anything but an ally.

"I've been told it's none of your business", said Rodney Miller, "that it was 'Army matters' and it was none of our business."
