This the true account of single parent, Sergeant Sara Raye who returned injured from service in Desert Storm to discover that her ex-husband had stolen custody of her three children. Citing violation of the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act, she goes to war using public appeal, orders from Washington, and an unprecedented National Guard JAG officer's appearance in Domestic Court.

Her story begins as the unappreciated, youngest daughter of critical parents who always expected her to fail. Supporting her three young children on her own as a nurse was difficult enough. With deployment to war as a member of the Reserves, she expected her family to help her.
