Tonight at Brown – Iraq vet speaks out

Kris Goldsmith 7pm in 115 Macmillan Hall (on Thayer, next to Science Library), 23 year-old Iraq vet Kris Goldsmith speaks about his experience fighting in Iraq:

Kris enlisted in the Army at age 18 and was deployed to Iraq in January 2005.  He soon found out that the American military presence was unwelcom by most Iraqis, and he was stuneed by the inability of the US military to repair the destruction caused by the invasion and address the needs of the Iraqi people.  Kris is a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War.

And he’s the youngest veteran ever to have testified before Congress.
