Camilo Mejia was the first US soldier court-martialed for desertion and
was ultimately sentenced to a year in jail. He was released in mid-February. Mejia spent six months in combat in Iraq where he witnessed the killing of civilians and the abuse of detainees. After he returned to the United States he decided never to return to fight in Iraq. He went
into hiding to avoid redeployment and was classified as AWOL by
the military. He spent five months underground. We’ll interview Mejia during the 9 to 10 am hour of Sunday Salon.
