Courage to Resist. May 21, 2010

Iraq War veteran Marc Hall, aka Hip Hop artist Marc Watercus, is finally free from the Army! With the help of hundreds of supporters who wrote letters and donated to his defense, Marc was able to avoid a General Court Martial in Iraq for producing an anti-“Stoploss” song. In a message to supporters, Marc shared:

Audio message to supporters. 5:30 min.{mp3}hall-free{/mp3}

“When you are facing something like this, there is almost nothing you can do about it. But when you have a good support system unit that knows exactly what is going on, it helps out so much. I just want to say thank you. There were a lot of other Soldiers that felt the same way, especially about the stop-loss…. Right now I’m going to make more music that is based on trying to help people out, and try to say things that everyone can understand… and try to make people understand what is going on. America is just not a place that wants to take over the world…. These are the kind of songs that have been popping up in my head…. If it was not for you all, I don’t know what would have happened…. I’m so happy to be free!”
