"Killing People Is Not What I Am", Says AWOL GI

A soldier who went AWOL two years ago rather than take part in combat is enroute to Fort Bragg to face military authorities.

PFC Daniel Marble, 25, went AWOL in August 2006 after he finished combat training. He was arrested on January 26 at his home in New Jersey on January 23, 2009.

Memorial for long-time WRL staff member Karl Bissinger

A memorial for long-time War Resisters League staff member Karl Bissinger will be held on Thursday, January 29, 6 pm in the Community Room at Westbeth (155 Bank Street) in the west Village. Karl, who died last November, began his involvement with WRL and the peace movement 50 years ago and was on the WRL staff from 1973 to 2006. In the 1940s and 50s he was a noted photographer before getting involved in the peace movement.
