Donate Rivera, now 30-years-old, was deployed to Iraq in 2006 with the Fort Carson, Colorado 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team. Stationed in Baghdad, she was assigned to guard the gates at Forward Operating Base Loyalty, where she was constantly approached by civilians. The soldiers were under orders to treat every civilian, including small children, as a potential threat warranting a lethal-force response.
