Camilo Mejia was born in Nicaragua but moved to the US as an adolescent. Shortly after graduating from high school he joined the U.S. military and was eventually deployed to Iraq in 2003. After five months in active combat, including posts in Baghdad, al Haditah, al Assad, and al Ramadi, he was sent home on leave, where he recognized and publicly condemned the Iraq war as criminal and immoral. He was subsequently court-martialed and charged with desertion and sent to serve nine months of incarceration at Fort Sill in Oklahoma. Mejia lives in Miami and continues to actively speak out against U.S. imperialism.
