SNAFU, Support Network for an Armed Forces Union, went to Jacksonville, No. Carolina near Camp Lejeune to accompany the mother of Stephen Funk, a young marine serving 6 months in the brig for refusing to go to Iraq and speaking out about it. They demonstrated and showed a video about depleted uranium to community college students there. Their efforts struck a chord in the population, most of whom are dependent on the military and have been exposed to combat and depleted uranium.

From: GIs Scoff At Re-Enlistment Bonus
Associated Press January 8, 2004 BAQOUBA, Iraq - At a checkpoint on the barren plain east of Baqouba, word of a new U.S. Army plan to pay soldiers up to $10,000 to re-enlist evoked laughter from a few bored-looking troopers. "Man, they can't pay me enough to stay here," said a 23-year-old specialist from the Army's 4th Infantry Division as he manned the checkpoint with Iraqi police outside this city 35 miles northeast of Baghdad. His comments reflect a sentiment not uncommon among the nearly two dozen soldiers in Iraq who have spoken with The Associated Press since the Army announced the increased re-enlistment bonuses for soldiers in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait on Monday.
