To the Winter Patriot
An impassioned open letter from Army vet and PhD economics student Mitch Green to his "brothers and sisters in the armed forces," asking, What will you do when your bosses call you to put down the Occupy movement? Powerful.
"Sadly, society has placed a twin tax upon you by asking that you sacrifice both your body and your morality...Now, more than ever we need your sacrifice. But, I’m asking you to soldier in a different way. If called upon to deny the people their first amendment right to peaceably assemble and petition their government for a redress of grievance, disregard the order. Abstain from service. Or if you are so bold, join us."
