Soldier Needs Help
I received some very disturbing news today. A soldier with the 1st Armored Division by the name of Jason Gunn from Upper Darby, PA is being redeployed to Iraq after receiving burns to over 50% of his body and witnessing the soldier next to him in his Humvee literally blow in half.

His doctors in Germany said that his physical wounds had been healed but he was suffering from sever Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and that he is unfit for duty.

His chain of command over ruled this and ordered that he be returned to duty. Jason's mother and father, Pat and Jerome Gunn, are of course incredibly distraught over this and want to see their son receive the care that he needs.

Please call your representatives and demand that Jason Gunn be removed from Iraq so that he can receive the medical care he needs and deserves.

Contact for this mission:

Michael Hoffman, Iraq war veteran (USMC-OIF):

Veterans for Peace, Chapter 31, Philadelphia, PA

2. I really want to get my hands
on the disciples of Mengele who claim to be doctors and allow these things to happen.
