McCord, a West Point graduate and decorated Cavalry Officer, was branded a coward by the Army following the Battle at Bitter Creek. He is disgraced in the eyes of the world, but as he travels throughout the Old West, he proves the label false over and over again. Whatever trouble he rides into, Jason McCord finds a way to get justice and redemption for those in need of help.
