ImageArmy Specialist Dusting Stevens was told to go home and the army didn’t want him anymore. Years later, at a routine traffic stop, he was informed he was AWOL and that he was under arrest. While waiting in a legal limbo, with Echo Platoon, of the 82nd Replacement Company Spec. Stevens began to actively seek change in the legal running of Echo Platoon.

Spec. Stevens efforts proved successful and in late October of 2009, nearly a year after Stevens was initially detained, Echo Platoon was officially disbanded. Two weeks later Spec. Stevens was finally discharged from the United States Army without facing court martial.
