The Army has filed criminal charges against
a
single-mom soldier who refused to deploy to Afghanistan because she had
nobody to care for her infant son. Spc. Alexis Hutchinson, 21, could
face a prison

court-martial of trying to be all she can be - including a good mom.

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
