Abstract:

In the aftermath of a "friendly fire" incident during the Persian Gulf War, tank battalion commander Nate Serling (Washington) is assigned to a Pentagon desk job reviewing recommendations for the award of military honors. He begins work on the case of Capt. Karen Walden (Ryan) who was a medevac helicopter pilot killed in action. She is the first woman nominated for the Medal of Honor and there is interest in the award at the highest levels of the government. Serling's investigation uncovers conflicting memories among the soldiers present when Walden was killed. With his superiors pressing for a conclusion, Serling senses a cover-up in the making. His quest to reveal the truth forces him to come to terms with his own nightmarish wartime memories which have caused a rift in his family and led him to start drinking heavily.
