Description - Antiwar Soldier by Jonathan W. Hutto

Many active duty, reserve, and guard service members are concerned about the war in Iraq and support the withdrawal of U. S. troops. Last year able seaman Jonathan Hutto banded together with a small group of fellow service men and women and build one of the first active duty antiwar groups since the Vietnam era. Antiwar Soldier offers military personnel and their families a practical toolkit to make their voices heard, drawing on Hutto's own experience as an activist and on the wealth of experience that the GI resistance movement of the 1960s and 1970s. Hutto seeks to educate military members and the public to the citizenship rights that active duty, reserve and national guard forces have. "In the short term," Hutto writes, "the appeal seeks to mobilize hundreds and thousands of military members throughout the world to file their grievances and reservations with members of Congress on the Iraq War. In the long term, the appeal seeks to build permanence with the formation of an Active Duty Network that can advocate on behalf of active duty members on a range of issues to all levels of government. "
