ImageFormer Staff Sergeant from North Carolina, 12-year Marine veteran, served in Iraq in 2003. He witnessed——and in some cases participated in—the killing of innocent civilians. The Iraqis “were just doing their normal routines”, he says, “and they were getting frickin’ blasted for it.” He began to speak out to his superiors and was eventually diagnosed with depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. He won an honorable discharge in December 2003.
