When the Army recalled Brandon Neely from the Individual Ready Reserve, Brandon did not answer the call. Today he is president of the Houston chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War and is speaking out."I have seen and done many horrible things, either at Guantánamo or in Iraq, and I know what it is like to try and move on with your life. It’s hard."

Last year, Brandon told us, “I looked at my dad and told him right there I’m not going back…. I never thought in a million years that the government and the President would send troops into harms way for nothing…. I got on the Internet and came across the Courage to Resist website.”
