Peter then comes with the strategy to use Vaughn’s affinity for women against her in court.
Shoot to the courtroom as Peter puts Toomin and Ward on the stand. He gets them to admit that they started the fight with the two men to prove that the Navy needed to re-evaluate its standards for putting women in combat. This qualifies as “sedition and mutiny” and Toomin and Ward are arrested.
