Episode Description

After years of loyal service to the U.S. Army, Lt. Elizabeth Whiteside is now being made a scapegoat for Army officials who do not want to admit that psychiatric injuries are as legitimate as losing limbs. This is the same macho attitude that contributed to Lt. Whiteside shooting herself in the stomach in Baghdad. Threatened punishment is court martial and a life sentence. When Lt. Whiteside, her father, Thomas Whiteside, and her lawyer, David Cynamon, reveal the true story here, you will want to take action to stop this abuse of the courageous troops who protect America.
