ImageUS Army Private. Enlisted at 17 but traveled to Canada to resist Iraq deployment in 2004 after discharge requests were refused. Currently awaiting Canadian Supreme Court ruling regarding refugee status. “I feel that if a soldier is given an order that he knows to not only be illegal, but immoral as well, then it his responsibility to refuse that order.”

“It is also my belief that if a soldier is refusing an order he knows to be wrong, it is not right for him to face persecution for it.”
