There are aspects of military life that can make it difficult for some to adapt once they have completed their service and it’s not necessarily what most people think. With a unique perspective as a fellow veteran, producer Scott Bourque examines the root cause of those issues in this series.

Meet Captain Signa Oliver. She served in the Army Artillery in the 1980s before working as a Phoenix Police officer. She then went to law school and commissioned back into the Army as a prosecutor in the Judge Advocate General Corps. Oliver was one of the 10-15% of soldiers who were women.
