Col. Margarethe Cammermeyer has served in the army for over twenty years. The Colonel was up for advancement inrank. She had as yet never loved anyone but her now divorced husband whom she had,had five sons with. They were raised In the Mormon church.

The Colonel was alsowith her eldest son going to school to get her Doctorate or Nursing and working at the VAin Washington. When asked if she were Gay or the cruel word a homosexual she said no!
