Reporters from The Denver Post are being denied access to Fort Carson as a result of one of the newspaper's articles.

Army officials say they're upset by a story the paper published about soldiers who say they're being denied health care.

The article examined claims from mentally and physically ill National Guard and Army Reserve members, who claim they're being shoved out of the military without disability pay.

Post editor Greg Moore says the story was balanced. The Army disagrees.

An Army official told the newspaper it's been removed from an e-mail list for news releases and invitations to events.

A Post reporter was also told Wednesday she could not attend a deployment ceremony that other reporters were allowed to cover.
