Conscientious Objector
Aidan Delgado was a soldier in Iraq for a year, which included six months as a prison guard at Abu Ghraib, before being discharged as a conscientious objector. Hours before the World Trade Center was attacked, Aidan signed up for limited duty with an Army Reserve unit. His moving presentation is a combination of letters he wrote home and pictures from his year in Iraq that tells a story ignored by the mass media.
Aidan's first presentation will be Sunday, March 13th at Laughing Horse Bookstore (3652 SE Division) at 7 pm. He will also be presenting at Lewis and Clark Law School on Monday, March 14th, at noon in Wood Hall- room 7.
