Only a Few Spoke Up on Abuse as Many Soldiers Stayed Silent—the New York Times reports on Joseph Darby and the small number of other soldiers with the decency and the guts to report abuses.
One way to begin to restore some of my confidence in the system would be to give Spec. Darby and the other early complainants a medal or two. If there isn't an appropriate medal in the military arsenal, then it is time to create one.
It would be the right thing to do.
