A tank commander, Capt. Shannon Meehan worked in the violent Diyala Province, successfully fighting the insurgency by various Sunni and Shia factions. He was celebrated by his senior officers and decorated with medals. Under the blazing Iraqi sun in the summer of 2007, Meehan ordered a strike that would take the lives of innocent Iraqi civilians. He thought he was doing the right thing. He thought he was protecting his men. He thought that he would only kill the enemy, but in the ruins of the strike, he discovers his mistake and uncovers a tragedy. Meehan and his co-contributing writer Roger Thompson will visit The Citadel.
