An Ethical Pause

Part 1: SFC Thompson talks about being asked to drive for a re-supply mission just before she redeployed. She agrees to the task. While on the way to the supported unit, the convoy is ambushed. One of the Turkish trucks is on fire and the driver is standing in the kill zone screaming for help. SFC Thompson is driving precious cargo and is ordered to "push through."

Part 2: SFC Thompson explains why she thought it was right to pick up this man. She asks, "What would I want someone to do for me?" SFC Thompson describes the challenges of doing the right thing even when worn down from a long deployment.
