RIP Chief.

I'm having a hard time getting my head around her being medically DQ'ed from going to grad school but is perfectly fine to go on a combat deployment.

Turns out what she was originally turned down for was a commissioning waiver. No problem believing that part, but to then turn around and declare her medically qualified and send her downrange? Douche move.

I won't delve into to any details, but she was a BADASS. There wasn't a dry eye at her memorial in Annapolis.
