US Army: Served 3 months in Iraq before seeking refuge in Canada with her husband and two small children in January, 2007. She went AWOL in order to resist returning to Iraq.

“I escaped death at least 4 or 5 times, lost an Iraqi friend, and know of soldiers being hurt or killed … I thought long and hard why I was fighting, and I couldn’t come up with an answer worth my life…. I am just glad I get to be a mom again.”
