SAN DIEGO — A few minutes after arriving at for services at Mt. Everest Academy in San Diego on Easter Sunday, Salem High graduate and Navy Seaman David Miller found himself in a precarious situation.

A woman stood with a child, brandishing a handgun at the front of the church, he said.

Miller recalled the pastor ushered people out of the church. Miller and a few others stayed, trying to sooth the situation.

"I saw an opening and I tackled her," along with one other man, Miller said. Another man standing nearby grabbed the child, he said.

They allege a pattern of both retaliation against whistleblowers and others who accuse their superiors of misconduct and a failure of the Guard's justice system to protect them.
