Release conscientious objector Justin Colby

Dear friend,

Justin Colby is a conscientious objector who is currently detained by the US Military. He was sentenced to 15 months in confinement (reduced to 9 through a pre-trial agreement), a bad conduct discharge, reduction to the lowest rank (E-1) and loss of all pay allowances. Justin Colby was humiliated and punished by a commanding officer when he asked to apply for conscientious objector status. He went AWOL because he refused to be deployed a second time to Iraq, and fled to Canada in 2006.
