A Persian Gulf veteran, Lt. Stillman, is under medication. On the 10th anniversary of his battle in the Gulf, during a veterans' parade, he begins to have hallucinations and flashbacks to his time during the War, where he was tortured but refused to break and won a medal. Stillman finally has his reunion with the men of his company, only to slowly realize that they died when he abandoned them. He was never tortured, but instead remembered someone else who was tortured in his place. He broke down easily and gave away the location of his men. Confronted with the truth, a shot rings out and Stillman falls down dead...but there's no gun to be found.
