TMLC President & Chief Counsel Richard Thompson joins Col. Allen West of NextGenerationTV.com to discuss the case involving Army LTC Matthew Dooley
Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley isn’t the one who has to hang his head low. That honor goes to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey.
