who is Victor Agosto and why is he refusing deployment to Afghanistan?

Our guest this Saturday, June 27 on Shared Sacrifice Weekend is Specialist Victor Agosto of the U.S. Army, who is refusing orders to deploy to Afghanistan. Agosto returned from a 13-month deployment to Iraq in November 2007, was based at Fort Hood, and was stop-lossed and ordered to go to Afghanistan. He refused, stating "The occupation is immoral and unjust. It does not make the American people any safer. It has the opposite effect." If Agosto continues to refuse orders, he almost assuredly will face court martial, and likely jail time.
