hero lost; soldier refused to torture

http://bit.ly/szRkd

My web site lisamcpherson.org is about a person wrongly killed who should be remembered. This article in Huffington Post is about another woman who should be remembered.

Peterson, 27, a Flagstaff, Ariz., native, served with C Company, 311th Military Intelligence BN, 101st Airborne. Peterson was an Arabic-speaking interrogator assigned to the prison at our air base in troubled Tal Afar in northwestern Iraq. According to official records, she died on Sept. 15, 2003, from a “non-hostile weapons discharge.”

But it was a suicide. She refused to torture. I salute her and pray for her.
