Twenty nine year old Rick Reyes was born to immigrants from Mexico, and grew up in Boyle Heights. He joined the Marine Corps and served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, based on his experience in Afghanistan and given President Obama’s promised troop surge, he thinks the US should at minimum rethink the Afghanistan war. In April Reyes testified to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee alongside other veterans of the Afghan war.
Rick Reyes will be our guest today on the GCN radio show at 5PM Central Time.
