Marine Corps Master Sgt. Jerry Ensminger was a devoted Marine for nearly 25 years. As a drill instructor he lived and breathed the “Corps” and indoctrinated thousands of new recruits. When Jerry’s nine-year-old daughter dies of a rare type of leukemia his world is upended. As a grief-stricken father he struggles to make sense of what happened. In his search for answers he discovers a Marine Corps cover-up of one of the largest water contamination incidents in U.S. history.
