Wisconsin Soldier Staying Home, Refuses to Return to Iraq

A Green Bay soldier has notified his commanding officers that he will not return to duty in Iraq.

Spc. Kristoffer Walker is a member of the 353rd Transportation Company. Walker said he was motivated to join the service after the Sept. 11 attacks. He enlisted in 2002 at the age of 21. But, Walker said he will no longer fight because he believes the war in Iraq is immoral.

He was scheduled to board a flight to return to duty last Friday after a two-week leave.

Walker has received an e-mail from the Army warning him of the consequences of going AWOL and asking him to reconsider.

The 28-year-old Army reservist has asked to be reassigned to duty locally. An Army spokesman said Walker needs to get back to his unit and work through the channels for reassignment.
