Publicly released: October 17, 2019
The Department of Defense (DoD) Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducted this investigation in response to whistleblower reprisal allegations against Valiant Integrated Services, Limited Liability Company (VIS). It was alleged that VIS attempted to transfer the Complainant from the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, to Basra, Iraq, and then discharged her on January 29, 2018 in reprisal for her making protected disclosures to various individuals who had oversight responsibility for the contact between VIS and the Department of the Army.
