Being from this unit this is a trumped up story of a subpar soldier trying to gain sympathy. the actual facts of this story is that "Ied" placed under her vehicle was actually on the other side of the road and amouonted to nothing more than a firecracker. There was never schrapnel and she was never injured. As far as her being passed over for promotion, that had nothing to do with her race or "do-rags", but had everything to do with her sub-par performance as a soldier. Nothing more, nothing less.
