Military Father Speaks
Out Against the Iraq War
Originally broadcast August 25, 2005 on WERU-FM
A conversation with Dexter Kamilewicz, a Maine father who's son is speaking
out about the conditions he and the other troops are really facing in Iraq.
Ben Kamilewicz is a world-class biathlete who hoped to be on the US team at
the 2006 Olympics. When he was recruited by the Vermont National Guard to be
on their biathalon team, pre-9/11 he never thought he'd find himself a few years
later, poorly trained and badly equipped fighting a war in Iraq. But since he
was sent there in July he and his family, who live in Orr's Island, Maine, have
been doing everything they can to call attention to what's really happneing
in Iraq. We spoke earlier today with his father Dexter Kamilewicz.
