Wounded veterans work to put away child predators

Army Staff Sgt. Oskar Zepeda removes a hard drive from a computer seized as evidence Dec. 16 at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement field office in Seattle, where he is serving a one-year internship. Zepeda, who served nine tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, before being wounded, is part of a 17-member class of veterans deployed to ICE field offices throughout the country to use his newly acquired skills in computer forensics to help capture and prosecute child predators.
