U.S. Army Soldier Refuses To Be Deployed to Iraq.

The ongoing War in Iraq remains a hot issue with voters come this November. Presidential hopefuls continue to lay down their plans on if or when to bring troops home, one U.S. Soldier is refusing to be deployed. 24 year old Matthis Chiroux says he will not deploy to Iraq. The young soldier was asked to report to duty on June 15Th, but refuses calling the War in Iraq, an illegal war. Chiroux has been in the U.S. Army for five years and has completed a tour of Afghanistan. However, he has no intentions of returning.
"My decision was entirely based on my desire to no longer continue violate my core values to support an illegal and unconstitutional occupation,"said Chiroux. The soldier is facing serious charges by choosing not to deploy including prison time or even the death penalty.
Independent studies revealed last month that nearly 300,000 U.S. Troops who served in Iraq and Afghanistan suffered from post-traumatic stress and depression.
