"Support Our Troops" is the refrain heard endlessly from those demanding unquestioning support of the Iraq War. But increasingly "Our Troops" are not only questioning but openly opposing the war they have been ordered to fight. Facing jail and ostracism, these GI resisters have refused to be bowed. Following his court-martial and imprisonment, Staff Sergeant Camilo Mejia wrote, "Behind these bars I sit a free man because I listened to a higher power, the voice of my conscience."
Mission Rejected is the first book to tell their stories. They are painful, poignant, and stirring-and they tell of the beginnings of a new GI Movement.
