John Bruhns continued
"They said we'd
be greeted as liberators. Obviously, that's not
the case. I turn the news on and I see car
bombs, suicide bombings, attacks on American
troops, Iraqi troops, Iraqi civilians and it
only seems to be getting worse. A rational
person would have to take a look at this and
say, 'You know what? As long as American troops
stay there, it's going to continue.'" - JOHN
SGT. JOHN BRUHNS volunteered for
the infantry after September 11th, 2001 to
protect his country. He participated in the
march to Baghdad in March 2003. During his 11
month tour in Iraq, his unit rounded up
suspects and delivered them to Abu Ghraib
prison. He also trained the new Iraqi military.
John was combat promoted and honorably
discharged in February 2005. Since then, he has
spoken out against the war and
testified to Congress about his
experiences and his conviction that
the reasons for going to war - WMDs, Al Qaeda,
and liberating the Iraqi people - have all
been proven false.
