    I have to admit that Shoshana Johnson was given a raw deal. It's good to see that she doesn't blame Lynch for all the publicity the media poured all over her.

    The other point is that this was a maintenance unit. While ALL Soldiers are trained for combat, there's still a huge difference between combat arms and non-combat arms soldiers. Combat arms soldiers live and breath this sort of stuff day in and day out while non-combat arms soldiers specialize in certain support functions. Nonetheless, Johnson performed bravely and honorably being put right in the middle of a situation that combat arms soldiers specialize in.
