Around 2008 I saw a newscast about a U.S.Military Veteran being deported from Canada back to The United States.That's where I met a Member of Veterans for Peace Jan Ruhman and It was then that I knew that I would fight my deportation until I could come back Home.

First we were Veterans without Borders,then Deported Veterans of America,and now Unified U.S.Deported Veterans. I have been The Co-Director of Unified for about 6 Years.
