Forum Post: About My Fight Against The System

My name is C.P. Morrison.  I went AWOL in protest to the war, and while AWOL I started an anti-corporate, anti-this government website called Airborne Nation in 2009 that works via facebook.  I am a former Airborne Ranger, ironically, who met all of the initial selection requirements for the Green Beret. I spent almost all my time spent on active duty on hazardous duty pay.  I was apprehended by federal warrant this summer after six years. I faced a court martial which I beat because my unit command refused to pursue me and the Army tried and failed.  Now a veteran, fully discharged as of last month, I wish to lend my full support, and that of my website to the Occupy Movement.  I have already risked prison and my life for the cause, trying desperately since 2009 to spark revolution via the internet.  I have traveled and lived everywhere from Mexico to Canada, LA to NYC learning about our people and their plight first hand.  Though I have recently fallen ill, I would be willing to speak if so desired and offer my unique perspective as my condition is improving.  Thank you, Power to the People!!

Six years AWOL as a revolutionary, get it?

For going AWOL. Someone who risks prison, a lost career as an elite soldier, who has the courage to create a website against the war while evading the government successfully is in fact the definition of a Revolutionary. Soldiers who go AWOL to fight the cause of the rebellion are often great revolutionaries. The only disgrace would have been killing women and children for Lockeed Martin and Halliburton.

AWOL Soldiers are not revolutionaries.

It is a disgrace to abandon your unit.


Six year old federal warrants have nothing to do with going AWOL in 2009.

Why would the movement require the assistance of someone like this?
