Michelle Malkin has this story:

Debra Muhl, a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserve, is a military nurse who has served in combat zones for 30 years. She works for Sutter Health, a health care provider in the Bay Area, as administrative director of the joint cardiac program

Or rather, she used to work for Sutter Health.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, she was fired last June just two days after letting her supervisor know that she was being sent to Iraq. Now, she has filed a federal lawsuit and it promises to be a very interesting case.

Malkin refers to other similar stories too. Take a look.

    Debra Muhl bleeds red, white, and blue. Shame on you Sutter Health! Whose side are you on anyway?

    I have known Debra for a long time. We served together in the Air Force Reserves. At one time I was her enlisted supervisor. After she became an officer, she administered my oath of enlistment to me. I hold her in the highest regard and respect as a person, mother, nurse and friend. She is also a big Will Clark fan and I gave her an autographed baseball many years ago.
