ImageMarine Lance Corporal Ivan Brobeck, 21, served in Iraq in 2004, where he witnessed abuse of Iraqi detainees and killing of civilians at military checkpoints. He chose Canada over a second tour in Iraq, saying he “didn’t want to put myself in a situation where I would possibly kill an innocent civilian.” In November 2007, he returned and turned himself in. He was court-martialed and jailed at Quantico, Virginia. He was released in February, 2007 with a bad conduct discharge.
